Obama’s Far Left Flank In Congress Urge Him To Take “Bold Action” With $2.2 TRILLION Stimulus Package…

Yeah.

The chart, below, from GovTrack.com illustrates just how far left these guys are:

The Hill reports that members of the Progressive (Socialist) caucus have presented their own -uh – road-map for America’s future, and *surprise!* it involves massive spending to tackle the jobs crisis.

Reps. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) — the co-chairmen of the Congressional Progressive Caucus — want the president to champion sweeping investments in the nation’s crumbling infrastructure as a way to create jobs and jolt the sluggish economy.

“With 14 million Americans still looking for work, this is not the time to tinker around the edges,” the lawmakers wrote to Obama Thursday. “We must take bold action, and that requires federal emergency jobs legislation.”

“The country’s infrastructure needs an estimated investment of $2.2 trillion,” Grijalva and Ellison wrote. “We should not delay these crucial investments, especially while millions of Americans are out of work. Rebuilding America — without creating expensive new corporate tax loopholes — will further boost our economy and create badly needed jobs.”

Paul Krugman seen nodding in agreement.

Their only possible motive for doing this is to make Obama’s more *modest* spending plan look more reasonable.

Hopefully, no one is fooled.

  1. Let’s see. $1.2T wasted by going into union leader pockets, into Wall Street supporters’ pockets, into politicians’ pockets.

    Yeah, all that was wrong with Stimulus I was that it didn’t line enough fat cat pockets to begin with! Come on, guys, let’s hand out more quid pro quo money!
