Obama and Bennet Attempt to Launch Second Costly Stimulus


As the Democrats desperately attempt to save their reelection chances this November, President Barack Obama and appointed U.S. Senator Michael Bennet are planning to force taxpayers to fork over even more of their hard-earned dollars in order to pay for another massive spending bill after their first $787 billion “stimulus” debacle failed to create much-needed jobs.

 

 

Last year, Bennet admittedly failed to read the bill before he voted it into law and claimed that “spending federal dollars can drive down the growing national debt.” Yet, as the first stimulus debacle became increasingly unpopular and Bennet faced an increasingly uphill election bid this November, Colorado’s appointed Senator attempted to backtrack and criticized the spending bill that he voted for, decrying the record debt that he helped build as “immoral to leave…to our children.” “Last year, appointed Senator Michael Bennet and President Obama blatantly ignored taxpayers’ concerns and promised that their massive stimulus bill would create much-needed jobs in Colorado and nationwide. Now, after failing to deliver on their economic promises for more than 18 months, the Obama Administration and Senator Bennet want to raid taxpayers’ wallets once again – this time with higher taxes to pay for even more Washington spending.” Obama and Bennet’s first failed stimulus spending bill spent taxpayer dollars on wasteful non-job related projects, including: * $144,541 to see how monkeys react under the influence of cocaine; * $2 million to study exotic ants; * Almost half-a-million to provide quitting smokers with a smartphone; * $554,000 to replace windows at a closed visitor center; * $760,000 for a computerized choreography program; * $357,710 to restore an abandoned furnace; * Over $13 million for repairs at the remote Dry Tortugas National Park in Key West, Florida; * $700,000 to study why monkeys respond negatively to inequity and unfairness; * Nearly $300,000 to provide information on interplanetary weather.
