Is Stimulus being used to Bailout States and Fund the Democrat Machine?

03 Mar

Although the idea of bailing out the States that have spent themselves into insolvency is being met with harsh resistance from Capitol Hill, an analysis of 1st Quarter Stimulus allocations by Congressional District reveals that the reviled Bailout is being done under the radar by the Obama Administration.

All told, Stimulus to all 435 Congressional Districts for the 1st Quarter of 2011 totals a staggering $226,269,853,050. Since all Congressional Districts represent roughly the same number of people (adjustments to Districts reflecting population shifts are to occur this year) pure mathematical division would give each District $520,160,581.

Keep that number in mind. 520 Million.

While one wouldn’t expect fairness in the way Obama distributes his ‘stash’, there is an undeniable pattern to the disbursement of these funds showing that a preponderance of the monies are going to Districts that contain State Capitals. In other words, unbeknown to most Americans, ALL States are, in fact, being bailed out from one degree to another.

Specifically, government JOBS are being saved, which means that the Jobs saved or created are most likely Government Union Jobs. Dues paying jobs.

It would be incorrect to say that the Treasury is being raided to fund the Democrat machine because the funds don’t exist. Money is being borrowed from China to fund the Democrats’ electoral treasure chest.

Linking the Congressional District of State Capitals to the exhaustive research into Stimulus spending done by Senior Research Fellow, Veronique de Rugy at the George Mason University’s Mercatus Center, (ARRA Spending Summary) then doing a descending sort by the amount of Stimulus dollars received, all 50 State Capitals are found within the top 88 recipients of the 435 Districts, with a sizable majority being within the Top 66.

State Capitals most often do not represent the highest populations within a State. There is a disconnect going on here.

The Stimulus money may be received in that District simply because of the zip code that the check is mailed to, but it’s pretty clear that these funds are going directly into the coffers of the 50 Statehouses across America rather than being used within the District itself. It is improbable that a majority of the funds are actually being spent on projects within the State Capital’s District, but are merely flooding State Governments with cash and propping up the Government workforces, as there are few identifiable new projects to which to link the outlay.

Where the Money goes

At number One on the list is California’s 5th District (Sacramento), which is receiving an astonishing $15,619,598,316.

FIFTEEN BILLION SIX HUNDRED NINETEEN MILLION. And change.

Remember, this is just for the 1st Quarter of 2011.

Is Sacramento, or the entire District in which it resides in such pitiful condition that it needs $15.6 Billion or is the lion’s share of this money being funneled directly into the State Government in an attempt to prop up this profligate disaster of a State?

Texas’s two Austin area Districts received $10.8 Billion combined, followed by NY21 (Albany) at Number 3 with $9 Billion, FL2 (Tallahasse) $7.8 Billion, Columbus, OH $6 Billion, Harrisburg, PA $5.2 Billion, Lansing, MI $5 Billion, and $3.8 Billion for Atlanta.

State Capitals All.

Are you seeing a pattern yet?

You have to get to the 9th position in the list before you see Stimulus going to a Congressional District that is NOT a State Capital. $3.6 Billion was given to Number 9 on the list, the District of Columbia, which is, of course, the National Capital, another habitual deadbeat and Union laden government.

Then, starting at Number 10 in the ranking are another 17 State Capitals within the next 22 slots.

In order:

Nashville, TN
Indianapolis, IN
Phoenix, AZ
Richmond, VA
Boston, MA
Jefferson City, MO
Raleigh, NC
Olympia, WA
Springfield, IL
St. Paul, MN
Denver, CO
Trenton, NJ
Baton Rouge, LA
Frankfort, KY
Oklahoma City
Columbia, SC
Madison, WI

All received between $2 and $3.3 Billion each.

All told, Stimulus to the State Capitals totals over 64% ($145.5 Billion) of the entire Spendulus for Q1.

If that isn’t a secret State (and State worker) Bailout, what is it exactly?

At the other end of the scale, NY9, which does not contain a State Capital, got a paltry $1.2 Million (not Billion, Million), which is .08% of what CA5 received. I’m not shedding crocodile tears for Congressman Anthony Weiner, but his District is getting a raw deal comparatively, but since Albany got $9 Billion the Government Union will take care of him while he shirks his constituency.

The Real Cost to the States and the People

The questions are twofold: When your State accepts ObamaBling has it necessarily surrendered its sovereignty and become a mere administrator of the national government AND if the funds are used to retain or hire new unionized employees is your State simply channeling Stimulus dollars to grateful Democrat voters who cede large portions of their salaries to Democrat coffers?

This funding is triggering a Constitutional Crisis, just as Obama engineered it.

2012 is our last chance.

    I think it is definitely the case that public funds are essentially being used to prop up Democratic Party constituencies. A good case in point is the GM and Chrysler fiascos. The union workers took relatively light hits; whereas, the white collar workers who where not unionized, and therefore are not funding the union which in turn funds the Democratic Party, took more substantial hits in terms of loss of pay, benefits, etc.

    There is a very dangerous pattern emerging here that people’s well being is becoming dependent upon allegiance to the right political party. That is one of the hallmarks of a tyranny and the fact that we are no longer a nation of laws but have become demoted from citizens to subjects who are at the whim of a too powerful government.

    Good grief! I know you guys can do better than this.

    Sometimes we reach too far to “prove” what we already know to be true anyway. You know this is silly. You said as much.

    Left to their own discretion, we know politicians will use whatever funds they control to buy votes. So yes, Democrats will use the stimulus funds to buy votes, that is, prop up the fortunes that party’s allies. That is why the blasted liars passed the stimulus bills in the first place.

    Thus, what these statistics show is what we already knew. The Feds mailed lots of checks (our money) to state capitals, and California is our biggest state.

      That blockquote function did not work quite the way I expected. These words are mine.

      It never hurts to have too many facts to back up one’s assertions.

    Sorry about all the nonsense repetition. I tried an experiment with the “blockquote” function. If finally realized it works the way I thought it did. So my “proof” proved redundant. In fact, I confused myself trying to prove something I already know.

    Please delete this comment and all my previous comments except the one I posted at 09:47 AM. Thank you.
