Question of the Day:
The cash for clunkers program was ill-considered at best, and a slap in the face of tax payers at worst. Hang on to your hats (and your wallets), boys and girls. They're going to do it again with appliances, and it's even less thought out than the first program.
Then again, what do you expect from a congress that's handing out cash bonuses to their "top aides" while many of their constituents are going jobless? Maybe it's me, but anyone making over $150,000 a year shouldn't be having too much trouble paying down their college loans.
It’s time to put a stop to this. Federal wages should be frozen for a period of years, at least until the private-sector economy has recovered and average workers start seeing some wage gains of their own. At the same time, gold-plated federal benefit packages should be scaled back as unaffordable given today’s massive budget deficits. There are many qualitative benefits of government work—such as extremely high job security—so taxpayers should not have to pay for such lavish government pay packages.Pay attention to which of these congress critters are pulling these stunts at the expense of their own constituents and pull the other lever in the next set of elections, would you?
