Obama Goes On Incredible $192 Million Splurge-Fest – WorldNetDaily

House Republicans are collecting photos from citizens showing how the Obama administration is using nearly $200 million in taxpayer money to plaster every possible highway with signs touting how stimulus cash is “Putting America to Work” with infrastructure projects.

Rep. Darrell Issa, the ranking Republican member on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, published a new video today inviting citizen watchdogs to send in photos of the green “Projects Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act” popping up around the country.

Entitled “Signs of a Failed Stimulus: Be a Citizen Watchdog,” the video seeks the investigative help of Americans “fed up with both President Obama’s failed ‘stimulus’ programs and the taxpayer-funded propaganda signs used to promote this $862 billion boondoggle which has not fulfilled its job-creation promises.”

In a statement released by his Washington office, Issa put out the challenge: “Seen a sign? Take a picture and send it with the address and location to stimulussigns@mail.house.gov.”

Issa’s office released an interactive map that allows readers to click on geographical locations around the country to view photographs citizens have taken of the nearly ubiquitous green American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) signs the Obama administration has been posting to advertise the “jobs created or saved” the White House likes to tout have resulted from deficit-spending stimulus projects.

Issa’s charge is not just that the stimulus spending has failed to create jobs, but the additional spending on stimulus roadsigns amounts to nothing more than a “propaganda” effort by the White House to convince Americans the stimulus has been successful, despite evidence to the contrary.

“This project harnesses the American public’s help in getting answers about why the administration has insisted on wasting potentially $192 million taxpayer dollars on pro-stimulus advertising even as the spending splurge has failed to meet the president’s own sales pitch: that the stimulus would keep unemployment below 8 percent and generate more than 4 million private sector jobs by the end of 2010,” Issa’s statement said.

“Today, unemployment stands at 9.6 percent, 14.9 million Americans cannot find work and more than 2.5 million people have lost their jobs since the stimulus became law.”

WND previously reported that a scathing Oversight Republican Staff Report has charged that the White House has “used the machinery of the Obama Campaign to tout the president’s agenda through inappropriate and sometimes unlawful public relations and propaganda initiatives.”

Under President Obama’s watch, some 3 million jobs have been lost, according to the Heritage Foundation. With 3 million jobs lost since Obama became president and the 3.5 million jobs Obama promised would be created if the stimulus plan were passed, Heritage concludes the Obama jobs deficit for 2010 stands at 7.6 million jobs.

Retirement Fund Trillions Lure Government Grabbers – American Thinker

Is the government making plans to confiscate your retirement money? The Obama administration is certainly exploring the idea.

This question no longer seems far-fetched when the group-thinkers in Washington unabashedly promote a doctrine of wealth redistribution and central planning. These Keynesian socialists know they will need vast new sources of revenues to fund their relentless spending binges.
