American Recovery and Investment Act

If you have time to look over the updated stimulus act, take a look here. It's some good readin'!

Some folks in the Senate have been opposed to the new Stim Act because of all the "pork" that has no impact on job creation. One such example is the payment of WWII Filipino veterans. This may get nixed from the Act. Obviously, this payment has been long over due. Hopefully this will stay in the final version of the Stim Act.

Another "pork" item that a couple of Senators want to nix involves bicycles. Bicycle infrastructure specifically. Take a look here.

Why do Republicans hate bicycles? Complete asshats! Building and maintaining trails would create jobs! Then there's the environmental and health benefits by folks commuting instead of driving! Arrrghhh!
