Haste makes Waste

The Obama administration has been deluging America with the propaganda that there’s not one second to lose. Even the slightest delay in passing the wasteful stimulus package will be, as they say, catastrophic.

Actually, the real reason for the haste is that the more that Americans begin to understand this $800-billion-plus (actually $1.3 trillion with the debt servicing) package, the more frightened they’ll become about what they’re doing to their kids and grandkids, and the more they’ll oppose it. One week of debate about passing the equivalent of an entire year’s budget is unprecdented, and not how a democracy is supposed to work.
