One of our friends reposted a Facebook item recently. One of the reasons we started this blog was to be able to respond to foolish things on Facebook because it is too cluttered with political stuff. We are sure there have been more foolish things but it is hard to imagine something more ironic. Here it is:
Imagine instead of $1.5 Trillion Tax Bill, they had produced a $1.5 Trillion infrastructure bill. Take about creating jobs!
Of course The Donald’s Immediate Predecessor (TDIP) did sign a $1.8 Trillion spending bill. A supporter said:
“This is a bill that protects America, rebuilds it and invests in the future,” she said. “I think it’s a great bill; it’s a result of bipartisan effort [imagine that]. Let’s vote for it, and may the Force be with us.”
With unemployment hovering near 10 percent nearly two years after President Obama signed his economic stimulus package, Mr. Obama is acknowledging that, despite his campaign promises, “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”
If TDIP can recognize it then everyone should. Now we will wait for two years as the press gives the president the benefit of the doubt before starting to evaluate the tax cut. That’s more irony in case you weren’t sure.
