Sanford Refuses Stimulus Cash

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford today announced he would refuse federal stimulus cash since his request to use some of the money to pay down state debt was rejected by the White House.  This is worth noting, not only from the standpoint of the Obama Administration ramming policy down the throat of a state, but also because many in the media have been unfairly jumping on Gov. Sanford of late and calling him a hippocrite for saying he wouldn't take stimulus money and then flipping.  Needless to say, this is simply untrue.

Congress Angry about Irresponsible Use of Taxpayer Dollars

David Harsanyi of the Denver Post has written an amazing article on Congressional outrage over AIG bonuses.  "Here's an idea: If you stop nationalizing banks, there will be no need to engage in phony-baloney indignation over bonus payments anymore."  He's exactly right!  I can't say it any better than he does:

Rothbard on Consumer Spending

A report released on Monday by the Commerce Department said spending rose by .6 percent in January.  The article reminded me of a chapter in Murray Rothbard's Man, Economy, and State.  Rothbard writes in Chapter 6,

The Government Stimulus Website

Our new accountable and transparent government recently launched a website to monitor spending from the stimulus bill.  On the very front page the site shows tax relief as the largest part of the stimulus.  I took issue with that right away.  The relief I thought they were talking about was the $400 tax rebates we're supposed to be getting which is looking more like welfare than a tax relief to me.

Some Governors May Reject Stimulus

Republican governors from Louisiana, Alaska, Idaho, Mississippi, Texas, and South Carolina may reject parts or all of the stimulus bill.  Most of the Governors are worried about future expenses down the road when the stimulus money stops flowing.  Others are concerned about federal requirements in the bill that might place extra costs on business.  Either way, federal money almost always comes with federal strings and an erosion of the healthy divide between power in Washington and power in the states.

Just how bad is the economy? A FreedomWorks activist sounds off.

I received an excellent email this morning from a FreedomWorks activist in response to a call to action that was sent yesterday regarding the massive stimulus package currently working its way through Congress. While we don't normally post emails from activists, over the last few weeks I've received literally hundreds of great responses, all with messages and ideas that I think others would find interesting.

Dangers of the Stimulus

Gary Wolfram, a professor at Hillsdale College, has a great article in Human Events today.  The article argues against the stimulus package on various grounds including the speed with which it's being passed, the size, and the negative effects that it will have on the economy.  He describes "crowding out" in the third to the last paragraph:
