The Stimulus Bill? Oh, That Thing We Approved Yesterday

From US News:

E-mails one key Democratic staffer: “K Street has the bill, or chunks of it, already, and the congressional offices don’t. So, the Hill is getting calls from the press (because it’s leaking out) asking us to confirm or talk about what we know — but we can’t do that because we haven’t seen the bill. Anyway, peeps up here are sort of a combo of confused and like, ‘Is this really happening?'” Reporters pressing for details, meanwhile, are getting different numbers from different offices, especially when seeking the details of specific programs.


If anyone needs me: I’ll, like, be slamming my head repeatedly against my desk. Last post on this topic for awhile. In case you’re (morbidly?) interested, the full text of the stimulus bill is online at THOMAS under the title HR1: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (stimulus bill).

  1. You know how you can tell this is bad? Pirates wrote this bill, notice how it’s The ARR Act. Never a good sign when pirates are exhaustively detailing how to spend around $800 billion bucks.
