Back at the end of 2008 when we were watching the economy unravel at an an alarming rate, the term "Shovel Ready" was coined, by Democrats in Congress, to indicate a type of job that a "Stimulus" could be applied to right away. Rightfully so, the president was a little skeptical of the long term advantages to "shovel ready" projects, yet he fought hard to make sure that debt-funded money was spent anyway. The 647 page, pork filled, $787 Billion dollar fiasco was passed into law by fear mongering coercion in which people were told "We must pass this spending bill in order to keep unemployment under 8%". In reality, after borrowing and spending all of that money, we still have unemployment numbers that vary between 10.5 and 17.7%.
Today, the president finally admitted "there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects”.
NO SUCH THING AS SHOVEL READY PROJECTS! Are you listening now? What did every conservative and libertarian tell you when this crap started? The president and every Democratic member of Congress has lied to you about where that money was going. It was going to line the pockets of politicians and their friends, and WE are going to have to pay for it.
Throw every incumbent out of DC, no matter which party they belong to. They are all party to what is likely the biggest theft and fraud in history from the American people.
