(which I am sending to GA Sen. Saxby Chambliss)
Every federal taxpayer dollar sent to states and local governments (to get them out of the hole they created) must be matched by $3 in actual cuts at given government’s level. Get a $1 for every $3 you cut. Right your ship, cut spending, and move on.
If other states and localities are refusing federal bailout money, and businesses receiving bailout ca$h are being forced to cut salaries and expenses, is this too much to ask? Considering we taxpayers are footing the tax bill at all levels, I think not.
The cost of the House version of the bill is $820 billion and is weighted more toward sending money to states and local governments.
Obama will take his case to the American people Monday with his first prime-time news conference.
*I wonder if a GOP response will be allowed following the POTUS’ press conference?
