Merry Christmas: I got yer stimulus right here!

The lobbyist are lining up to get their hands on the next outflow of taxpayer dollars to come out of Washington. It is good to see that their are some people in Washington and I am happy to see that some are Democrats who know that just throwing money out is not the best way to stimulate the economy and be effective. Here is the money quote:"
If we're going to call it a stimulus package, it has to be stimulating and has to be stimulating now. I think there are members of our caucus who are trying to create a Christmas tree out of this," said Rep. Baron P. Hill (Ind.), incoming co-chairman of the Blue Dog Coalition, a caucus of 51 fiscally conservative House Democrats.
The Christmas tree is a good analogy. While it looks pretty for a while in the house. It eventually winds up on the street with all the other trash a symbol of wasted money. Let's hope Dems like Rep. Hill and the Obama administration keep their eye on the money and make sure we taxpayers get the most out of every dollar spent in the "stimulus" bill.
