Morbildly Obese Levels of Spending?

Congresswoman Bachmann dropped that bomb this morning on Fox news, describing the "Economic Surge" by saying it had "morbidly obese levels of spending".

She also discussed that it was difficult for her to look at 20 or 25 year old in the face and tell them that this package was good for them.

While I have some problems with the package, I do believe that we need to do something. We cannot collectively sit on our hands and hope that Adam Smith and his invisible hand rescue our troubled economy.

After 8 years (6 of which under strong Conservative control) of failed Bush foreign and domestic policy, corporate waste fraud and abuse, and no accountability, an invisible hand will do nothing to right this sinking vessel.

A strong and tight fist is what we need.

Now back to Congresswoman Bachmann...

She can't look a 20 or 25 year old in the face and tell them this is good for them. Gotcha Michele, although that's pretty hard when one rarely sees the Congresswoman in district and when she does come back, it's via a first class flight.

The hypocrisy kills me here...

So, spending nearly a trillion dollars in Iraq, first destroying it and now rebuilding it, meanwhile having no accountability for the Military Industrial Complex and it's war profiteer's Halliburton, Blackwater and other defense contractors is a good physically fit, fat free way of spending?

Spending money to create jobs and help Americans impacted by 8 years of failed Bush foreign and domestic policy is the fast food version, a "morbidly obese" way to spend?


By the way, the next time Congresswoman Bachmann steps into the 6th to look a 20 or 25 year old in the face may well be here first!
