Outside of a town near me is a sign that looks just like this. It has hung there for three years.
No one in town can tell you what (if anything) was "paid for" by the stimulus money grab, and not one lick of work has been performed on that road in the three years since it went up.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon is furloughing 750,000 workers because it cannot make payroll due to a massive cut to its Operations and Maintenance budget halfway through a fiscal year due to the Sequester - but Obama wants to dole out Billions more in "stimulus."
Where are the Republican members of Congress? I have never, ever seen such poor leadership (from either party) in Washington in my lifetime. And that is saying something.
