Re: SOUTH CAROLINAS SANFORD REJECTS STIMULUS MONEY
I live in SC and this clown is the biggest idiot ever! Sanford was born with a silver spoon, never has worked an real job in his life. Sanford could care less about the citizens of SC. I really dont know if he should accept the money or not but I know for a fact this clown has bankrupted our state. His hairlip ass thinks he has a shot at the prez in 2012, fat chance.

Re: SOUTH CAROLINAS SANFORD REJECTS STIMULUS MONEY
"Our objections to the so-called stimulus bill have been well-chronicled for the way it spends money that we don't have and for the way this printing of money could ultimately devalue the American dollar," Sanford said on Tuesday, even as he acknowledged that he'll accept some.

My guess he will be taking at least $7 Billion of the 8 earmarked for his stae

Thats like the stupid repubs that bashed the pork bill (which should have been) but then took tons of earmarks of their own in the 410Billion bill.

Read the final bailout bill. AR doesn't get anything. This was an estimate, on the website.

We are in the black. All of the allocations were for federally subsidized programs anyway, so we'll still get paid, or we'll cut them, like any intelligent budget manager would do.

This is a very philanthropic state, but not by federal mandate, but by people. I live in a farming community of 3,000, maybe 7,000 county wide, and there's a church of some sort every 5 feet, feeding the unemployed every Tuesday and holding benefits for the local schools to get new science equipment and computers. That's the way it used to be, and that's the way it best works, because people can see directly how their donations effect their neighbors instead of being taxed to death so some asshole at Lehman can get a 3 million bonus for losing the company money.

The state don't pay for shit, but when my Father's wife was dying of cancer on a major medical policy, private philanthropic organizations covered her hospice care.

Oh yeah, I'm Libertarian, by the way.

the website is brand new, as in it just went online today.

not only that, but there's a state certification letter that you can read which clearly states that governor mike beebe will request and use funds provided by the act. finally, there appear to be a number of news articles published as recently as today that suggest that mike beebe will indeed be using the federal stimulus money.

please, show us where in the final bailout bill it states that arkansas is not getting anything, because you must be the only person who read that line.

Read it. No earmarks for AR. I can't abide your reading discomprehension.

Everything on the site is money provided by federally mandated programs that the state would have received anyway, if people weren't in fear of the Fed going belly up.

Please try to read. Obammy is promising to pay monies if we keep the teat milking. The bill is not yet funded. States like AR will not payout if they don't get paid......it's the sweetly veiled threat via internet extortion, if you will.....

sorry, but i don't have time to read through the entire stimulus bill at the moment. you apparently have, though, so maybe you can at least give me a section title or number to focus on.

on the other hand, maybe you should try to read as well, as i've provided evidence that arkansas is indeed on the list to receive money from the stimulus bill, and by all accounts will be taking at least some of that money. the items listed on the website are part of the stimulus bill only, it's not a list of all the federal money that they normally receive.

Hate to break it to you, but yes, I have read the final bill, and yes, I have read the apportiontments to my state, and that is less than what the FED would pony up for in an entire year for medicaid, roads, dams, parks, unemployment etc. (and we do have a hell of a lot of parks and dams.......maybe you should think about how much it costs to keep the most major rivers in the country from decimating communities every year. We've been keeping them on an unnatural flow for 30 years, don't you know, and they flow through my state), and maybe you should research your own state and how your own monies are allocated and maybe this is just window dressing for a federal budget that doesn't exist at this juncture. And maybe you should think about how you are going to feed and clothe your loved ones when the dollar becomes worthless and you are living in some sewage infested condo......while my peeps will be growing food and livestock, shooting revenuers, and living life like they did before you started sucking on the government subsidized milk program in pre-school.

wow, ok, let's stick to one discussion here: whether or not arkansas is receiving any money from the latest economic stimulus plan.

i never doubted that you've read the entire bill, that's wonderful. all i'm asking for is a section number or title that details what each state will or will not be getting. i found the full text and did a search for 'arkansas' and nothing came up. maybe you can help me with that, since you've read the full text of the act.

you seem to now be suggesting that arkansas IS set to receive money as a result of this act, so maybe you realize that you're wrong here. just for clarification, the money provided to each state by this act is entirely separate from the other money that the federal government provides to each state every year. it is not replacing that money, it is meant to be used as a supplement.

so then, if you still think arkansas is not receiving any money at all from the economic stimulus bill, then please provide evidence of this.

Stimulus bill is just bullshit to keep federally mandated teat sucking moving. What is apportioned to the states is what they would normally get for federally subsidized programs. It's a budget window-dressed in bullshit.

I am not wrong. There are no earmerks for Ar in either stimulus bill. There is a slew of promises from Fed Gov. to pay for for all the entitlement programs they currently pay for. If you had any reading comprehension skills, you'd concur. The entire stimulus bill (for my state) is a fluffer to NOT cut federally mandated programs. That's all. Look to your own state to see who's sucking the swill at the trough.

prove it.
you keep insisting that you're right, yet you show no evidence of this.

if you still can't do that, go back to the arkansas recovery website and click on each bar in that graph. you'll get a description of the programs that will benefit from this stimulus, and you'll see that the benefits are beyond the amount that the federal government currently provides.
