According to the AP, "President Barack Obama warned on Thursday that failure to act on an economic recovery package could plunge the nation into a long-lasting recession that might prove irreversible..." Why hasn't someone called this "scare tactics"?
And this "recovery" plan includes $70 million for super computers to research climate change, $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts, $335 million to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, $150 million to insure honeybee farmers, and on and on. But we find that certain politicians who want to spend our tax money aren't willing to pay theirs!! If these people think more taxes are the cure for our nation's problems, why, oh why, wouldn't it behoove them to pay their taxes instead of avoiding them??
