Posted on 02/25/2009 9:03:12 AM PST by allmost
Vice President Biden today defended the Obama administration's massive stimulus package and ambitious policy goals, vowing to "follow the money" and publicly track any missteps among decision makers "to embarrass them into doing what they are supposed to do."
Appearing on all three network morning shows the day after President Obama outlined his plans before a joint session of Congress, Biden explained the role he will play as the chief overseer of the government's stimulus plan. He said a simultaneous effort to revive the economy and reform health care, education and energy is a vital part of recovering from the ongoing financial downturn.
"Opportunity presents itself in the middle of a crisis," Biden said on ABC's "Good Morning America." He added: "You cannot gain control of our budget deficits without gaining control of health-care spending. You cannot gain control over our economy without gaining control of our energy policy. And you cannot grow this country without an education policy."

Communism loves a vacuum and Obama is creating one with every speech. Obama is the statist that Ayn Rand warned against.

Let’s start with that first 350 billion. Where did it go Joe???
Just what I want this idiot to do; control our economy.
Hey Joe! The Soviets ran 5-year plans. Try it out!
$350 Billion? That’s Chump Change.
Try TWO TRILLION in undocumented “loans” made by Bernanke and Paulson (who seems to have diaappeared)
Better get on that TWO TRILLION, Joe. You’re the middle class point man and we want answers.
Oh, and she'll get the bridge or bus line about 2 or 3 years after the going out of business sale ends.
“You cannot gain control of our budget deficits without gaining control of health-care spending. You cannot gain control over our economy without gaining control of our energy policy.”
You cannot gain control of the people until you gain control of every aspect of their lives.
Just like FDR did in 1929.
“Stand up, Chuck!”
“...because nobody messes with Joe!”
Why am I suddenly reminded from this passage from Goodfellas:
“Now the guy’s got Paulie as a partner. Any problems, he goes to Paulie. Trouble with the bill? He can go to Paulie. Trouble with the cops, deliveries, Tommy, he can call Paulie. But now the guy’s gotta come up with Paulie’s money every week no matter what. Business bad? F you, pay me. Oh, you had a fire? F you, pay me. Place got hit by lightning huh? F you, pay me.”
That seems to be the direction we are barreling towards as a nation.
