"stimulus" money is not free money from heaven. It is TAX dollars extracted
forcibly from the U.S. citizens and corporations that could have been used for
other projects.Worse, in most cases it is actually BORROWED money
that will will be paying interest on for decades until our grandchildren are hit
with outrageous tax rates to pay it off.WE CANNOT AFFORD ANY MORE
STIMULUS!Utah should know better and refuse to dine at the trough with the
Let's not be hypocrits about this: we scream, we yell, we shout that we hate
the fed. govt...and then we stick out hand out for the hand out.Dis=gusting!!!!!Be honest with yourself, Utahns, vote
democrat and own up to what you are doing.
I don't think Utah deserves a cent from the Federal Government if we are a
society that would wish away the federal government if we could. Until we
consider voting for a Democrat we should get no more Federal money and see how
we like it.
Fed Up,I do agree with you.
Wrex-When you use tax money for fancy rec centers and soccer stadiums,
that's pork. When you spend $200 million for an airport for a small city like
St. George, that is pork. Utah builds lots of lavish vanity projects instead of
the roads and things you talk about and then goes begging to the feds. That's
pork guzzling behavior. Utah needs to stop the wasteful vanity projects and
focus on the essentials.
Hey "Fed Up 11:48",Do you think that roads, bridges and traffic
signals are "pork?" Do you think that wastewater treatment systems
are "pork?" Do you drive a car, or flush your toilet?
To: :-)You got that right- for all their whining Utahns LOVE to wallow in
pork so long as someone else is paying.
Why don't we eliminate the middle-man (US Government) & go get the money
directly from the sources ... Saudia Arabia, China, Dubai, Etc. ... then we can
get more without the US Government taking their cut?The barrower is
(ALWAYS) slave to the lender!
The citizens of Utah, being true to the legionary values, have spoken out
against Obama's socialism but they will line up for their share of the booty.Utah gets $1.28 back for each dollar Utahans pay in federal taxes.
Utah's 3.2 billion dollars is the gold standard for America Olympics.
