A different take on the “Stimulus Bill”

Found this interesting review of the Stimulus Bill on http://www.Boundlessline.org… While I will not pretend to know enough about economics to join issues with the American Plan to pump about $1.2 trillion into the US economy to stimulate growth, a few of the items on the shopping list seem downright absurd to me.. A $246 million tax break for Hollywood movie producers, $650 million for the digital television converter box coupon program, $448 million for constructing the Department of Homeland Security headquarters, $248 million for furniture at the new Homeland Security headquarters, $150 million for Smithsonian museum facilities, $6 billion to turn federal buildings into “green” buildings, $75 million to construct a “security training” facility for State Department Security officers when they can be trained at existing facilities of other agencies, $110 million to the Farm Service Agency to upgrade computer systems and $200 million in funding for the lease of alternative energy vehicles for use on military installations sounds like a political scam of “Nigerianesque” proportions… But then maybe our Naija politicians are understudying the American model in the first place….
