Your tax dollars at work (redux)

It's a sad day when it's left to the likes of the National Enquirer (November 2, 2009 issue) to tell an important truth 'bout President B. Hussein Obama's "stimulus." To wit:

Politicians are spending up to $20 million in tax-payers' money to put signs on highway improvement projects funded by the government stimulus package.

Opponents say the signs are nothing but an opportunity for elected officials to blow their own horn - while taxpayers foot the bill. ...

The signs say "Putting America to Work" and "Project Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act." they cost $500 apiece in Maryland and New Hampshire, $2,000 in Pennsylvania and $3,000 in New Jersey. ...

An amendment to ban the signs was proposed by Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), but it was defeated in the Senate.

Before you poo-poo a "news" story from the National Enquirer, remember: If not for NE's fearless snoops, John Edwards' love-child would've never been revealed, and the sneaky, cheatin' sombitch might've become U.S. Attorney General.

So there.
