I think that stimulus became part of the baseline spending, and thus we now spend that extra 800 billion every year. This is why the senate has refused to prepare any budget since then. If they did, us poor folk would realize the scam.
I think the people who would realize the scam already know it. The rest have no idea or couldn't care less about baselines. I wish it were the other way, but too many people are drinking the dire $85 billion in sequestration cuts will devastate the country kool-aid.
Sadly funny, huh? People have managed to survive losing that 2% of their FICA withholding they've had in their own pockets for the past year, but the Feds cutting about the same from their spending is the end of the world.
