The Health Care Deficit
Barack Obama said this week that he wouldn’t sign any health care legislation that added to the deficit. Yeah, just like he wasn’t going to raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000 a year. The Congressional Budget Office analysis is out, guess what the verdict is?
The Stimulus Wasn’t Meant to Stimulate
The White House is taking a beating over the performance of the stimulus package. With unemployment still on the rise it appears the “recovery act” hasn’t worked as promised. However, the White House communications team has a plan, they’re claiming the stimulus wasn’t meant to give the economy a full recovery. Why would anyone think that, it’s not like the word “recovery” is in the name.
A Different Type of Viagra
Some people are a little strange. Police in Minnesota are on the lookout for a man that slashes mass amounts of exercise balls. According to the man slashing exercise balls gives him some weird type of sexual arousal. Uhhh, that’s a little strange.
