Economic meltdown

Saw this on another board. Sorry if it's a repost. Notice that the meltdown started around january of 2008, right when the dems took over congress. This is a very scary chart.

The first stimulus was not the omnibus spending package that Obama forced through within just a few weeks, which was laden with nothing but pork.

"It was signed into law on February 13, 2008 by President Bush with the support of a majority of Democratic lawmakers, as well as a minority of Republicans."

But the FUNDS WERE NOT DIRECTED BY BUSH. The money was approved, but Barry is the one sending it to Chicago...

Let me rephrase...Barry is reponsible for where the money is going.

Imagine me giving my college kid money to pay her rent, but she goes the Nordstrom's instead.

I'm failing to see your point.

Quote:
The law provides for tax rebates to low- and middle-income U.S. taxpayers, tax incentives to stimulate business investment, and an increase in the limits imposed on mortgages eligible for purchase by government-sponsored enterprises (e.g., Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac). The total cost of this bill was projected at $152 billion for 2008.
Ok, so the mortgage thing probably didn't help matters, no doubt about it. What is it about that particular bill that was pork?

I think the one you are looking for is this one, which may have been signed by Bush, but the majority of the money was doled out by Obama. Keep in mind that Obama also changed the rules repeatedly so he could use the funds as he saw fit.

And then there was this one. Also known as the Omnibus Spending Bill.

Just to add to what others have said, he went by "Barry" up till college, when he met his militant buddies who convinced him that "Barrack" sounded more like a revolutionist and activist, which is what he was getting into at the time.

I noticed how you carefully dodged the comment on socialized medicine.. what is the issue, cannot find a wiki page that links it to Bush yet?
