If we had rejsected the federal money it would have saved the state money in the long run but hey it was free money. Nothing is free and if there is a long list of stipulations I hope our governer would do the same but as a Dem I know there is no way he would do that.
U know what's definitely not free fd? Freedom... it costs a hefty f@ck*ing fee.

Its time we start buying stuff made here and this bill is a good chance to help bring back the MADE IN THE US.
We have international treaties and obligations. We must have a valid reason to institute a Buy American policy as is the case with heavily subsidized Chinese steel. If Buy American is misused it will cost us more than it will benefit us so we have to be careful not to pick our own feathers.

i think one of the biggest problems is that there really aren't a whole lot of rules to follow. as far as emissions, we have very strict guidelines. as far as workers safety, we have very strict guidelines. as far as workers compensation, we have very strict guidelines. China, and the rest of the bunch, pretty much has a free pass. not really fair trade, huh?

Your right.........I'm sorry, I was trying to compare the money that Bush gave me to the money that each state and some cities are getting. And you're right; I can't. I can compare it to Bush's stimulus, but I can't compare it to Obama's. Things have changed. There are no more blank checks being cut anymore. The Federal Government won't be handing out billions of dollars in bonuses to the top execs that caused this problem. The Federal Government isn't going to be buying luxury planes for companies anymore. And of course, they sure as heck won't be paying millions of dollars for massages, waxing, pedicures, and golf.................................By attaching these strings, Obama and his administration are making sure that this money is spent wisely. Okay, Okay, more wisely then in the past. I don't think thats a bad thing. In fact, its what should have been done in the first place.
