Biden said he and Melody Barnes, White House Domestic Policy Council director, have talked at length about ways to “generate new ideas about how to deal with future employment needs,” Biden said. “We have new ideas about how to spend government money wisely.”
He said that there was “virtually no fraud” associated with the spending so far of the billions allocated for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The government, according to recovery.gov, has distributed just over one half of the $787 billion.
“I might add, I’m very proud to say, that’s there’s been virtually no – knock on wood – virtually no fraud associated with the $787 billion program overall,” Biden said as he banged his fist on the table and against his head.
We spent 787 billion dollars on ideas? Nice. But that is not what Obama said to begin with. This was supposed to be about creating jobs. But, Biden says we have ideas now. And what is this about no fraud, or rather virtually no fraud?
What about this story?
Or this one?
Or this one?
And Joe, these are ideas to spend government money wisely? OK, first of all, it is not the government's money...it is the people's money....but check these out.
The Obama administration....spending and surrendering our way to oblivion, one day at a time.
