short-term jobs stimulusmore Porkulus throwing money at unions who can then launder it and ship it back to the NSDWP, a credible long-term debt reduction planbunch of empty promises about “spending cuts in the out years” which will never occur with entitlement cuts and tax reform that increases revenuesmassive tax hikes that will utterly destroy what sad remnants are left of our trashed economy.

Say… Porkulus II, empty spending cut promises, massive tax hikes… Doesn’t that sound an awful lot like Ogabelini’s “Pass This Bill Now!” Bill?
