Examiner editor: Facts about the so-called stimulus
Posted on Feb 2, 2009
Washington Examiner editorial page editor Mark Tapscott, with the help of the Heritage Foundation, takes his pen to Obama's $1.2 trillion government spending plan, citing some of the better reasons to oppose it.
Tapscott also covers something that annoys me when anti-capitalists talk about their "green" jobs. They're not new jobs. They're just unstable replacements for already-existing, good-paying jobs.
You can read Tapscott's very succinct and dead-on anaylsis at his online Copy Desk. I suggest you bookmark the Examiner as the government expansion plan lumbers its way through the Senate.
A better idea would be to provide much-needed tax relief to employers and to reduce government spending. America's job creators pay the second-highest taxes in the world, and we wonder why we're struggling to grow the economy.
