The REAL Cost?

Three ++ trillion dollars.

All of the major news outlets are reporting that the stimulus bill voted out of conference committee last night has a meager $789 billion price tag. This number is pure fantasy. No one believes that the increased funding for programs the left loves like Head Start, Medicaid, COBRA, and the Earned Income Tax Credit is in anyway temporary. No Congress under control of the left will ever cut funding for these programs.

--Heritage Foundation report

We know it's not about the money. It's about control of the electorate.

Even so, that's a lot of my children's (and THEIR children's) money, ain'a?

Ironic, it a perverse way, that Obama’s first major accomplishment will be selling his daughters and all our children into debt slavery.

Not nearly as ironic as that Kohl, Feingold, and Schumer (among others) will be voting for a "Final Solution" health provision in that bill.
