Stimulus - Spending or Relief

The House is scheduled to vote on H.R. 1 later this week. Although Democrats are marketing the bill as an economic stimulus package it is nothing more than a $825 billion spending spree containing a tremendous amount of pork, few meaningful measures to stimulate the economy, and the expected perks for their radical left causes, including:

• Hundreds of millions of dollars for family planning including abortion providers.

• Billions of dollars for left-wing groups like ACORN, which has been accused of voter fraud.

• 1.1 billion dollars for "Comparative Effectiveness Research," the cornerstone of nationalized health care

• More massive education spending increases with no accountability.

There is a powerful alternative.

The Republican Study Committee has introduced the Economic Recovery and Middle-Class Relief Act of 2009 as an alternative to the Democrats' big-spending plan.

While the Democrats' plan simply prescribes more government spending during a time of record-breaking budget deficits, the RSC bill is a pro-growth alternative that unleashes the potential of American businesses, investors, and entrepreneurs.

The RSC plan provides incentive-based relief to individuals and job creators in order to reduce the burden that the government places on both employers and employees.

Economic recovery is not easy, but it must begin with responsible solutions that will invigorate the private sector, not another big-government handout.

Let Congress know which plan you support.
