Do You Want Obama, Reid and Pelosi Running Texas?

Accepting federal stimulus dollars for unemployment involves long-term funding and a big expansion of government – including new classes of government coverage.

The strings of the Stimulus $$ cost more than the benefit to be derived. Bottom line: it mandates extending, expanding, long-term taxes on employers.

The last thing we need is the federal government coming to Texas and making demands before they send our hard-earned dollars back to us!

What our legislators assigned with the task of deciphering the 1100+ pages of ambiguity in the stimulus bill are finding is that accepting the unemployment stimulus would give us a $75 million per year liability which would continue long after the stimulus runs out. When Texas legislators phone DC to ask questions, they are told that the “rules are still being written!”

An example of excess in the bill is the “weatherization” program: Texas already has funding for weatherizing homes for impoverished Texans. But the Stimulus calls for $260 million for weatherizing Texas homes — 20% ($5.2 million!!!) of which is to be used for training people to “weatherize” – (Is that not idiotic?)

The government has no money of its own, only what it takes from the taxpayers.
