I don't know who bought that shtick. To me it was an obvious lie, and I doubt those who voted for him even listened to what he was saying, they were too focused on their delusions of lefty messiah coming.
House Democrats propose $825 billion stimulus bill
House Democrats OK a $835 billion plan that includes more spending and less tax cuts than Obama sought.
House Democrats call for $825 billion in federal spending and tax cuts to revive the moribund economy, with strong emphasis on energy, education, health care and jobs-producing highway construction.
The legislation calls for federal spending of roughly $550 billion and tax cuts of $275 billion over the next two years -- totals all but certain to rise as it makes its way through Congress.
P.S. Hope? Change?
How will this country do better with a tax embezzler running the treasury? I guess it's change, just not the kind anyone ever envisioned:
LA Times: Was Timothy Geithner mistaken or misleading? (H/T gateway pundit) - collected tax refunds, without paying taxes - is a tax expert, will head treasury deaprtment. Unless 1+1=3, and to moonbats, it's 3 - they guy cheated on taxes.

I'll finish this post with a hat tip to Weasel Zippers for this WTF photo:

Exit question, do highway construction really produce jobs - or as many jobs as is promised by Democrat politicians (and their crony news papers)?
