From your link:



The MOST that was allotted to infrastructure in any one year was $50 billion. Now then, what did justoneman claim?



That's a damned lie as I noted.

Too bad you wasted everyone's time with your half-baked comeback.

Speaking of damn lies

Quote:
ARRA had three spending categories. It cut taxes by $288 billion. It spent $224 billion in extended unemployment benefits, education and health care. It created jobs by allocating $275 billion in federal contracts, grants, and loans.

Congress designed the Act to spend $720 billion, or 91.5 percent, in its first three fiscal years. It allocated $185 billion in FY 2009, $400 billion in FY 2010 and $135 billion in FY 2011.

The Obama administration did better than planned. By the end of FY 2009, it spent $241.9 billion. Of that, it spent $92.8 billion in tax relief, $86.5 billion in unemployment and other benefits and $62.6 billion in job creation grants.
Quote:
In the FY 2012 budget, the Congress allocated additional funding to raise the total to $840 billion. By December 31, 2013, the administration spent $816.3 billion. Of that, it spent $290.7 billion in tax relief, $264.4 billion in benefits, and $261.2 billion in contracts, grants and loans. (Source: Recovery.gov.)

The woman at Equifax said Happy Holidays and I said Merry Christmas which made her silent when she had been gabby. I know Merry Christmas is not politically correct these days but said it. I will be glad when this holiday season gets over. A little snow is on the ground in Brown Township and there is a snowfall tonight which gives us a White Christmas. I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas but only with Bing Crosby singing the lyrics with the Henry Mancini Orchestra playing the melody.

edit: I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thanks from Hollywood and Clara007

My granddad was a mill wright. He worked every holiday. They paid triple time and he worked a straight 24 hour shift. It's when they did maintenance on the mill. With what he made working those days, he put both of his children thru college.

The first part of your assignment you failed. You failed to realize what I was replying to. Now, that I have quoted the 50 billion quote. Go back and read what I posted again.

News Flash....

Leftists shocked to discover people have better lives with prosperity.

Some hope that they further learn that prosperity follows from reducing taxes and reducing government regulations.
