I can’t believe our “leaders” have agreed on the this economic stimulus package. It is just a transfer of money from those making under $95,000 to those making less. What do we as taxpayers and a society get for our money. NOTHING! A few people will pay their bills, some will save but most will just buy more junk they don’t need and can’t afford. It just encourages more irresponsible behavior on the part of our citizenry. Think what this $150,000 billion would buy if it went to renewing our aging infrastructure, increasing medical research etc. Jobs would be created, materials and equipment would be purchased and society would have something to show for the investment.
When will we get leaders with the moral courage to do the right thing for the common good of our society! I have yet to see any of them on the campaign trail.
Remember Sacred Leaders not only deal with the present but also keep on eye on the long term needs of the commons. In this case our leaders have done neither.
