Big Lie of the Week

President Obama to the Joint Session of Congress on February 24, 2009:

As soon as I took office, I asked this Congress to send me a recovery plan by President’s Day that would put people back to work and put money in their pockets. Not because I believe in bigger government – I don’t.

Don’t listen to the words, watch the actions.  The “stimulus bill” and the current Ombibus spending bill, and whatever else is coming down the pike will lead to the biggest expansion of the federal government in generations.  That is BIG GOVERNMENT.

I still doubt that we will see many  “people back to work” because of this out of control spending.  As for “put[ting money in their pockets], if it does make it into anyone’s pocket, it won’t stay there long.  A trillion dollars is a big, big chunk of change.  If you spend $1000 a second, it would take 314 years to go through a trillion dollars.
