In her Washington Examiner piece yesterday on the visit of Vice President Joe Biden to the daily White House press briefing, Julie Mason notes that the former six-term Delaware Senator was sharing “with us the details of ‘Recovery Summer,’ which will usher in the biggest frenzy of stimulus spending to date.”
Recovery Summer? Biggest frenzy of stimulus spending to date?
So they’re saving it all for the summer before the mid-term elections in order to goose the economy in time for the mid-term elections? Kind of like trying to use federal dollars to limit Democratic losses?
And despite all this infusion of federal cash into the economy, jobless claims are still rising.
Maybe Obama and his Democrats should have tried to bribe the private sector instead of siphoning the better part of the the funds to state governments so they wouldn’t have to make hard choices, cutting spending and reducing benefits to public employees (who join unions which help fund the Democratic Party).
