Porkulus Money for Tax Cheats
Okay, so you’re upset at the money we spend or give Israel every year. Try this. “Thousands of companies –” and, by the way, this is an AP story, and they are totally unfazed by this, and this, to me, is one of the stories of the day. If it weren’t for Netanyahu being here, if it weren’t for Obama going to Ireland and Europe, if it weren’t for the tornadoes in Joplin, this would be a huge story. “Thousands of companies that cashed in on President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus package owed the government millions in unpaid taxes, congressional investigators have found.” You see, in terms of the way AP wrote this, Obama didn’t give these companies, these organizations, money that they should never have gotten. They cashed in. That’s how you write about slush funds. They cashed in.
So the slush fund, the stimulus bill directed money at organizations and companies that owed back taxes. In other words, the government, the regime forgave these organizations and companies their back taxes by paying them the money that they owed. “The Government Accountability Office, in a report being released today, said at least 3,700 government contractors and nonprofit organizations that received more than $24 billion from the stimulus effort owed $757 million in back taxes as of Sept. 30, 2009, the end of the budget year.” So 3,700 contractors and nonprofits, organizations, owed a grand total of $757 million, and collectively they got $24 billion.
So they got enough money to pay their back taxes, and then some, and then some more, and then some more. It’s $24 billion to pay off $757 million. So they still had $22 billion left over to play with, government contractors and nonprofits. I wonder what they had in common besides being tax cheats? Might they have been contributors to the Democrat Party? Maybe they had been foot soldiers? Maybe they helped get-out-the-vote? Maybe they were part of the reelect effort somehow, and so their back taxes were not only forgiven, but they got your taxpayer dollars given to them so they could pay their back taxes. I suspect so because none of them are named in this story. We don’t know who. Why aren’t we told the names of these companies and these nonprofit organizations by this unfazed Associated Press?
