So says David Harsanyi, in his column a href=”http://www.denverpost.com/harsanyi/ci_11585798″today in the emDenver Post/em: /abr /br /blockquoteYes, $400 billion to prevent sexually transmitted diseases will save your job. A $34 million remodeling of the Department of Commerce and $150 million for honey bee insurance and hundreds of billions in new government growth will create economic growth faster than a similar-sized business or payroll tax cut, you are led to believe. /blockquotebr /br /The “stimulus” bill is all about payback to Obama’s supporters and to a lesser degree, about fixing the economy. I am just hoping that the Senate Republicans are as savvy as those in the House about voting against the bill. They have nothing to gain and everything to lose if they do. If the stimulus works (I am dubious about this), then the Dems will get the credit. If the bill fails, those Republicans who signed on will be blamed, so what’s the point?
