The U.S. Senate voted to stop production of the F-22 fighter today, after President Hussein's urging.
"I reject the notion that we have to waste billions of taxpayer dollars on outdated and unnecessary defense projects to keep this nation secure," President Hussein said after the vote.
Well then, here's what I say to THAT:
"I reject the notion we have to waste TRILLIONS of taxpayer dollars on outdated and unnecessary SOCIAL PROJECTS and BANK BAILOUTS to keep our economy secure."
Indeed, Republican Governer Jodi Rell of Connecticut agrees with me: ""In the midst of the greatest economic turmoil since the Great Depression — and at a time when Congress has approved countless hundreds of billions of dollars in stimulus funding and bailouts for banks and automotive manufacturers — I cannot understand why this relatively small amount of money is seen as a stumbling block," she said.
Up to 100,000 jobs are at stake, directly or indirectly. That's not counting industries that supply the manufacturer. Way to go Hussein. Throw people out of work. That's a good stimulus.
