Remember the famous Republican sales spiel for TARP to abandon the Free Market to save it? I do. Hell, that Republican even said , "I'd approve TARP again." I also remember the Michigan Republican that said, "if we don't pass something to help the financial institution, it collapses, the DOW loses another 3,000 points, it needed to be done." Well, George W, Pete Hoekstra, along with a gaggle of other Pale Pastels... thank you for opening another Pandoras Box of reckless spending as those who parade around the Big Tent as alleged "conservatives" always do.
The state is poised to have $100 million in federal funds freed up to demolish vacant homes in Detroit, Pontiac, Flint, Grand Rapids and Saginaw.
See that? Poof! In only two years, TARP transcends into the Hardest Hit Fund. Pure Magic! Take a look at the map, it's predominately a Blue State bailout scheme for failed Progressive Utopias. To paraphrase the late Baroness Thatcher - The problem with Socialism is that the Democrats will never run out of other peoples money in America, as long as there are Progressives in the Republican Party finding ways to steal it for them.
And, the MI-GOP in Lansing, along with the RNC in D.C., wonders why they've been going down in electoral flames ever since they dropped the ball with the 2010 Sea of TEA Partying Red demanding Constitutionally limited, fiscal responsible, sound government.
For record, the only Michigan Reps. who honorably voted NO on TARP were: Conyers, McCotter, Miller, Rogers, Stupak, and Walberg. I thank you for that vote, again. And, the usual cast of Senate RINO's confirmed a Geithner Treasury Department that dreams up Progressive aid programs like the Hardest Hit Fund. Way to go, dunderheads.
