"Opinion: Obama Offers Stimulus Reruns



How much double billing for the same thing is Washington racking up???? 


"Opinion: Obama Offers Stimulus Reruns

"......But the stimulus bill from last year included an almost identical $48 billion in extra transportation spending, along with those same promises -- rebuild the nation's infrastructure for tomorrow, and create jobs today. ...."

Double dipping seems to be the trend this year.

Thanks Konane,
With the amount going to infrastructure jobs in these so called jobs bills make me wonder a couple things. For one how much is usualy budgeted for infrastructure work yearly? Number two is this money being voted for in these bills above and beyond the normal budgeted amount? Or is the normal amount not being budgeted and these special bills voted on to funds the work in the end. What happen to all this gas tax money collected that goes for hwy construction, bridges and repairs. What happen to all the money collected for airport fees by airlines. Plus any other taxation for infrastructure anyone can think of.

Thanks JAP! We've already witnessed how well they've accounted who received TARP and 'Stimulus' funds .... you can bet this will be more of the same taxpayers money will be seized to pay for.
