Medidas de recuperación en EE. UU.: De 56 “billones” (25 de setiembre de 2008) a un “trillón” (14 de febrero de 2009)

Nos lo cuenta en Gateway Pundit que recoge una comunicación del Partido Republicano (Stimulus Package Started Out at $56 Billion… Now It’s a Trillion):

Like creeping socialism, the stimulus bill that started out at $56 billion will end up costing taxpayers and their children and grand children over a trillion dollars.

The Senate GOP sent out this history of the bill yesterday:

Se quejan los republicanos, pero creo que se les puede aplicar el dicho de «Llora como mujer lo que no supiste defender como hombre…». Y que nadie se ofenda. Por lo demás el dicho es un malentendido. Entre los mahometanos los hombres lloran y las mujeres gritan haciendo muchos aspavientos.
