Back to Washington to spend more taxpayer dollars

A report at the link below is titled, House Republicans suggest names for Democrats’ untitled, $26-Billion ‘Second Stimulus’ bill.

As if they hadn't already spent enough, they are back at the hog feeder for more. This spending frenzy has been so hastily thrown together they haven't even given it a name.

As CNET reported, a watchdog Web site on Sunday evening noted that the Democrats’ $26-billion spending measure includes a few blank spaces.

Congress’ official Web site calls it the ‘______Act of____,’ and the Library of Congress’ Thomas Web site displays it as the 'XXXXXX Axt of XXXX.'

“A nameless bill for a hopeless cause is a fitting metaphor for a Democratic Congress that refuses to listen to the American people and abandon its job-killing agenda,” said House Republican Leader John Boehner (Ohio).

House Republicans on Monday offered 10 possible names for what they call the “union-boss bailout” bill. The names suggested are:

1. ‘Recovery Summer’ Bailout Act (Cash for Flunkers)

2. Delivering Unions a Major Boost (DUMB) Act

3. The HEEHAW Act (Helping Election Expenditures, Hurting American Workers)

4. The DISCLOSE Act (Democracy is Strengthened by Clearly Leveraging and Optimizing Special-Interests’ Effectiveness)
5. The HUBOUCC Act (Holding Union Bosses Over Until Card Check Act)

6. The RIDIC Act (Rescuing Incumbent Democrats Is Costly Act)

7. Summertime Cash for Union Bosses Instead of Spending Cuts for Taxpayers Act

8. The FAIL Act (Frivolous Act of Ineffective Largesse Act)

9. The NTTHGUA Act (Naming These Things Hasn’t Gotten Us Anywhere, So Why Bother? Act)

10. The SOS Act (Save Our ‘Stimulus’ Act)

While most of the suggested names sound ridiculous so does the idea of spending another $26-Billion that probably won't work any better than the previous Obama stimulus measures.

American voters are gradually realizing they are like Bernie Madoff investors who suddenly learned the earning statements were phony and they really didn’t have anything.
