John Campbell Votes Against Stimulus Bill

I want to make sure that I praise my representative John Campbell for voting against the so called "Stimulus Bill" today in Congress. Unfortunately it passed by a huge margin of 385 to 35. Mr. Campbell is turning out to be a pretty good Congressman so far. This wealth redistribution bill was wrong on so many levels. It gave tax rebates to people who don't even pay taxes. You could say it is a feel good welfare bill. It blows another big hole in the deficit. We don't have the money to pay for this thing so that means the Fed is going to have to print the money and beg the Chinese to help us finance it. It doesn't lower tax rates or make the tax cuts permanent which would have been a hell of a lot more stimulative. This bill boils down to CYA(cover your ass) bill for the Congressmen & women to tell their constituents that they are really feeling their pain right now so we're going to try and buy you off with whatever it takes. Here's a link to a three minute speech Mr. Campbell gave in the House today opposing the bill.
