The Spending Plan is Out

By Amanda Carpenter

I just got a copy of the $825 billion spending plan outlined by the Democratic-controlled House Appropriations Committee.

It is frightening.

Take a looksee here if you don't believe me.

The highlights of this bill, allegedly crafted to save us from the Wall Street crisis but is obviously being used to fund every hail Mary liberal, entitlement cause under the sun, includes:

(Note, anything I put it quotes is because A. it comes directly from the memo and B. it's so vague and/or ridiculous I don't know what it actually means. And, no this is NOT the full list. This is a PORTION. )

-$6 billion to weatherize "modest income homes."

-$6 billion to provide internet in "underserved" areas

-$6 billion for "higher education modernization."

-$20 billion in health information technology to "prevent medial mistakes."

-$20 billion to increase food stamp funding

-$87 billion to provide a "temporary" increase in Medicaid funding

-$300 million to provide rebates for people who purchase Energy Star products

-$600 million for the federal government to buy brand new energy efficient cars

-$400 million for state and local governments to buy brand new energy efficient cars

-$2.4 billion for carbon capture demonstration programs

-$350 million to research using energy efficient technology on military bases

-$300 million for grants and loans to state and local governments for projects that reduce diesel emissions, "benefiting public health and reducing global warming"

-$500 million for energy efficient manufacturing demonstration projects.

-$400 million to build major research facilities "that perform cutting edge science"

-$1.5 billion for expanding "good jobs in biomedical research"

-$400 million "to put more scientists to work doing climate change research"

-$600 million for satellite development and acquisitions, including climate sensors and climate modeling.

-$250 million "to address long-term economic distress in urban industrial cores and rural areas distributed based on need and ability to create jobs and attract private investment."

-$650 million to continue the coupon program to enable American households to convert from analog television transmission to digital transmission.

-$300 million for the National Wildlife Refuges and National Fish Hatcheries

-$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts

-$400 million for "ready-to-go habitat restoration projects"

-$2 billion to provide child care services for an additional 300,000 children in low-income families while their parents go to work.

-$120 million to provide subsidized community service jobs to an additional 24,000 low-income older Americans

-$1.5 billion to help local communities build and rehabilitate low-income housing using green technologies.

-$500 million to rehabilitate and improve energy efficiency at some of the over 42,000 housing units maintained by Native American housing programs

-$10 million for "rural, high-need areas to undertake projects using sustainable and energy-efficient building and rehabilitation practices"


Are you shocked? I'm not. This and more will be coming 'down the pipe'(sewer pipe?) the longer Democrats are allowed free reign. Where are the Republicans? Hiding? Get off your duffs you wimps...do what people of this country elected you to do.

Could this be construed as "taxation without representation"? You can decide for yourself.

The government is broke. So where are the tax and spend Democrat thieves going to get the money? You...the taxpayer. And if they can't get enough from you they will borrow it and/or print 'new money' which increases inflation, reduces the value of the dollar, and ultimately increases your taxes. These people are insane.

A slogan began in the period 1763 - 1776, "No taxation without representation", that summarized one of the primary grievances of the colonists against the British which ultimately led to the founding of this Republic.

Taxation without representation is tyranny.

Add the following to the mix and what do YOU see?

"H.Res. 5

Adopting the Rules of the House of Representatives for the One Hundred Eleventh Congress

January 6, 2009

Motions to Recommit: Limits the Minority’s ability to offer motions to recommit to those with instructions to report back “forthwith”, e.g. those that if adopted will amend the bill immediately without the bill leaving the House floor. This rule change will bar Republicans from offering motions with instructions to report back “promptly,” and thereby send the bill back to committee to make a particular change if adopted. This change will force all motions to recommit to comply with the Democrat PAYGO rules, thus blocking Republican efforts to strike tax increases in various legislation or offer tax reduction amendments that are not “paid for” with tax increases."

Snooper, at Take Our Country Back also has an important piece posted, "Repealing The 22nd Amendment" a proposal by Jose Serrano, another friggin' Democrat naturally.

How many of you even know what the 22nd Amendment is?

Have you read The Bill of Rights?

What about The Declaration of Independence or The United States Constitution?

The United States Constitution Amendments.

You can research in depth at; Primary Documents in American History.

Definition of tyranny;

1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.

2. the government or rule of a tyrant or absolute ruler.

3. a state ruled by a tyrant or absolute ruler.

4. oppressive or unjustly severe government on the part of any ruler.

5. undue severity or harshness.

6. a tyrannical act or proceeding.

Time for a tea party?

"Governments derive... their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, (absolute power or influence of any kind) it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." -- US Declaration of Independence
"It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error." -- Robert H. Jackson, US Judge (1892-1954)
"I heartily accept the motto `The government is best which governs least'; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which I also believe, - `That government is best which governs not at all'." -- Henry David Thoreau
Democrats don't care about you. They aren't your friends. All they care about is power and spending...stealing  your hard earned cash for their idiotic social programs. And I'm beginning to believe the same about Republicans....This is no longer government by the people and for the people...this is nothing short of tyranny.
Keep it up... we will fight you....take THAT to the bank.
