"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Text

Here's your Congress's "Stimulus Package."

Here are some highlights:

$1,000,000,000 (billion!) for the Census Bureau! Now that's change we can believe in, because we all know that if anything stimulates the economy it's more bureaucrats.

$400,000,000 (million!) for Global Warming Research.

$650,000,000 (million!) for analog-digital television converters!

$2,000,000,000 (billion!) for renewable energy research! (Aren't private companies doing this already?) Sphere: Related Content
