...the $787 billion stimulus measure-
it's important to separate economic fact from fiction.
"without reading it",
the White House promised the stimulus would provide "an immediate jolt" to the U.S. economy. Thus creating millions of new jobs and keeping unemployment under 8 percent.

Everyday the media reports on some outrageous spending:
- $3 million turtle crossing in Florida
- $50,000 for a hand puppet project through the National Endowment for the arts.
- New office furniture for federal executives.
- In Union, NY the city was given $600,000 for a homeless program. The city doesn't have homeless issues nor a homeless program.
