stimulus Money

Post by pdq67 » Sun Sep 03, 2017 9:43 am

Where did the $8 to $9,000,000,000,000 stimulus money go to??

You know, the $8 to $9,000,000,000 money that was supposed to be used for just one year, but that didn't get shut-off until 8 or 9 years later!!

OR, have they even SHUT IT OFF??

Most of the Trillions are hidden in my mattress.

Actually I have no idea where the money went....but I've got another question. Where are all the "infrastructure" improvements that were budgeted? I can't say nothing has been done, but I believe had Obama and the Dems made any "real" infrastructure improvements they would have been talking about them during the election.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

They didn't......it turned out there weren't any "shovel ready" projects. All they did was waste money

joe 90,

Aren't most all the world's Banks ran/owned by JEWS, so why do they need the money?

The stimulus was about 1T iirc....gone to all kinds of small temporary stuff, none of the permanent infrastructure they talked about. Wasted..

Mark,

In other words, you are telling me that the 1st year stimulus money was stopped after it was let out/disbursed and that bh0 didn't increase our Nat'l Debt by $8, to $9,000,000,000,000 after all??

Please verify this!

Thanks, pdq67

The debt went up a lot during Oblhablah's watch.....8-9T is about right but only about 1T is the stimulus then rest is normal unfunded spending. Congress authorized all kinds of programs and hasn't used real math to calculate revenue in 30+ years so every year they roll the programs forward with the costs going up. Then when GPD drops like the 2008 crash all of a sudden revenue is nowhere close to expenses and debt explodes.

About the only thing I give Oblahblah credit for is he did try to raise taxes to cover expenses.....but the republicans shut that effort down...while they approved unfunded budgets. The president can NOT pass a bugdet or revenue plan, only congress has that power. The dems own the 1T stimulus but anyhitng after 2010 is republican spending/borrowing. I honestly prefer tax and spend to the the republican borrow and spend path.

So if you want to know why the debt has exploded, look to republicans.....which is a big part of the reason I refer to them as liberal right and not in anyway conservative.

Mark,

How about let's throw a 3rd choice in here?

Call it, "Tax and pay down our Nat'l Debt"..

Remember me saying that, "Gov. is only good IF you get MORE out of it than you pay in"... So we really need to stop this WORLD-WIDE too... Not just here.

The is the option I would prefer and I consider paying off the debt part of the unfunded spending that is going on.

For sure we need spending cuts. We talk and talk and spending cuts that have happen and I think the reason they don't happen is it all looks free because it's borrowed money. and I think the best way to help people see that is to pass a real revenue plan that pats for all the crap they think is "free".

I say pass a revenue plan to pay for it then tax taxes when spending is actually cut and he have and actual not estimated revenue surplus.
