For the record, Newsweek, you can count me out.
Massive $800,000,000,000 spendfest passes 61-36.

500,000,000 every month huh.
Math Fail. This seems applicable:
Dude – take her word for it though:
No pork at all…
I took some screenshots of some fairly disgusting Facebook ads. All go to some freeloading douchenozzel’s website where he tries to sell you on how to get ‘free money from the government’. So let’s analyze them briefly:
I guess applying for ‘free’ grant money can be called a job… But then again – the grant payouts come from taxes taken from people who actually do real work. So congrats for being a leech on society, lazy suckling welfare scumbag.
Yeah, ‘From Obama’ = Redistributed from actual hard working American Taxpayers (aka. producers)
‘Giving Away’ = Paying you cash…from your own credit card. I’m surprised there’s no mention of Nigerian Kings…
I guess these ads have their worshipers target audience down though running on Facbook…
So how big is the resulting $1.2 trillion spending package? Big enough to dwarf any government program in history, even after adjusting for inflation. It’s bigger than the New Deal and the Iraq War combined. The interest alone will be costlier than going to the moon or the Louisiana Purchase. The $18 billion in bonuses paid legally by private Wall Street firms in 2008 – decried by the President as “shameful” – is vanishingly small in comparison (smaller even than the bill’s incremental food stamps expenditures).
The only relatively modest component of the spending bonanza is the money tagged for infrastructure and energy efficiency (the ostensibly stimulative part), which accounts for less than 14% of the total.
…The bailout has cost more than all of these big budget government expenditures – combined:
• Marshall Plan: Cost: $12.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $115.3 billion
• Louisiana Purchase: Cost: $15 million, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $217 billion
• Race to the Moon: Cost: $36.4 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $237 billion
• S&L Crisis: Cost: $153 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $256 billion
• Korean War: Cost: $54 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $454 billion
• The New Deal: Cost: $32 billion (Est), Inflation Adjusted Cost: $500 billion (Est)
• Invasion of Iraq: Cost: $551b, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $597 billion
• Vietnam War: Cost: $111 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $698 billion
• NASA: Cost: $416.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $851.2 billion
TOTAL: $3.92 trillion
The only single American event in history that even comes close to matching the cost of the credit crisis is World War II: Original Cost: $288 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $3.6 trillion
The $4.6165 trillion dollars committed so far is about a trillion dollars ($979 billion dollars) greater than the entire cost of World War II borne by the United States: $3.6 trillion, adjusted for inflation (original cost was $288 billion).
You be the judge:
“Contraception will Reduce Cost for the State”
Ok – I get it. Not being born will mean less people the State has to pay for through entitlements that Nancy Pelosi fought to be put into place. That totally makes sense now.
But I thought she was elected for the children?!?
