Cash for Water Heaters? Bet That’ll Work About as Well as Cash for Clunkers…

Posted on March 6 2010 1:30 pm
I write as just one of millions of Americans who are considered as mere sheep who need to be herded by their sheep dogs. I’m one of those who believe in free-market capitalism, private property rights, the 1st amendment, the 2nd amendment and those thereafter too. I'm a constitutionalists who would be closer to the platform of Ron Paul, than to that of most republicans. Our founding fathers were so much more wiser than any we currently have sitting in places of highness, because for one, they were educated at a time when questioning was expected, and two, they revered the Holy Scriptures of Almighty God, and three, they were felt a sense of humility for the position and power they were entrusted to. The vision our current crop of politicians have is very different than the original vision which enabled America to become the greatest nation on the face of this earth. Rather than providing the people with the tools to achieve their own goals and ambitions, these new liberals are providing themselves with the power to limit individual goal achievement based on the notion that a bigger government is the answer to the problems of the little people. I'm just an average guy down the block

The Real Standard for a Real Green House

Get ready to get in line for your next rebate opportunity as these programs go as fast as they come. The organizer in chief is on a roll with a new idea for saving jobs, creating jobs, reducing our dependence on oil, boosting the economy, along with clunkers being discarded before their time. Hmmm? How did the other cash for clunkers program work. Did not. Did not. Did not.

Obama sees the job as president as “seeing to it that every American that wants to work and is able to work can find a job,” And that’s why he’s proposing a cash rebate for anyone who upgrades their water heaters, air conditioners, home appliances, insulation, toasters, coffee makers, lawnmowers to “Homestar” approval. Now he did not specifically mention all of those appliances, as what’s to be included in the program has yet to be written into law. Also not yet determined is who will qualify, where they must be purchased, who can install the items, and for how many billions the program will last. Also, not determined is who will pay for the program. Also not determined is how will it create jobs for Americans who want to find one.

Obama spells out rebates for energy efficiency.

Obama said the administration’s “HOMESTAR” program would reward people who buy energy-saving equipment with an on-the-spot rebate of $1,000 or more. He cast the idea as one that would save people money on utility bills, boost the economy and reduce American dependence on oil.

“That was my focus last year and that is my focus this year,” he said, “to lay a foundation for economic growth that creates jobs.”

Has he ever thought about just reducing taxes across the board? Reducing federal mandates? Reducing federal agencies? Congress working part time jobs shoveling snow to help pay down the deficit?

And now to a question the organizer in chief has not thought about either: What article of the constitution authorizes the president, or congress to send out tax money to the special few who purchase specific products?

The general welfare clause? That’s the answer we’ll get, if the media ever thinks of even asking that question.
