Signs of the Failure of the Times

Attempts by Democrats to have the government tax, borrow and spend this nation into prosperity are a dismal failure.  Perhaps nothing more epitomizes the arrogance of the Democrats’ reign than the Obama administration’s self-congratulatory propaganda signs, an effort that would make a dictator like the late Saddam Hussein or Kim Jung Il of North Korea proud.

Citizens from around the country are taking photos and sending them into stimulussigns@mail.house.gov to help out the oversight effort.  For a larger view of the map click here.

Signs of President Obama’s failed $862 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – also known as the “stimulus” – are popping up all over the country.  The White House wants Americans to believe that these taxpayer funded billboards are signs of an improving economy created by government spending instead of the cold, hard reality that more than 14.9 million Americans can’t find jobs. By focusing on creating jobs through government spending, the Obama Administration has failed to recognize that government doesn’t create the jobs that power our economy – private business does.  If stimulus signs posted the truth, they’d say that the White House promised the American people that the stimulus would keep unemployment below 8%: today it stands at 9.6% and runs much higher in some states.  Instead, as many as $192 million stimulus dollars are being spent on these signs that try to sell Americans on the wisdom of a political agenda that has failed to deliver promised job creation.  Signs don’t put America back to work, but they are being bought and paid for with your tax dollars in an effort to help President Obama and his pro-stimulus spending allies in Washington keep their jobs.  This is an outrage and we need your help to hold them accountable.

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, led by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the top Republican on the committee, have doggedly pursued answers to accountability questions surrounding everything from requirements for the signs to qualify for the taxpayer money to the cost accountability for the millions of dollars wasted on the propaganda efforts.

You can help them in their efforts.  Take a photo, email it in.  It’s that simple! stimulussigns@mail.house.gov
