Typical misguided misuse of stimulus funds: Governor Rell (CT) wants a portion of those federal funds to go to a program designed to crack down on sexual predators.
Is the program worthy and important? Yes, of course it is.
Was it affected any by the economy? Not in any way that I can see. Is it going to help the economy? Not in any way that I can see.
People just don’t seem to understand that the money is there to solve the current crisis; this isn’t Queen For A Day TV. If a problem was there before the economic situation then it could wait a little bit longer to get the money I’m sure it needs. It seems that special interest groups are like vultures in grabbing a share of free-flowing government funds.
