Senators Seek to Block Stimulus Money for Overseas

The world is truly turning upside down when I agree with anything that comes out of Chuck Schumer's pie hole.

A group of Democratic senators is urging the Obama administration to suspend an economic stimulus program aimed at financing renewable energy, complaining that money is going to projects that are creating jobs in foreign countries.

The four senators, led by Chuck Schumer of New York, wrote to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on Tuesday to request a moratorium on the Recovery Act program. They asked that the moratorium remain in place until they can pass legislation mandating stimulus aid flow only to projects which preserve and create U.S. jobs.

"A critical Recovery Act priority is investment in the domestic renewable and clean energy industry, not investment in foreign manufacturers," the senators wrote in the letter, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. The letter, which will be disclosed at a news conference Wednesday, was also signed by Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Robert Casey of Pennsylvania and Jon Tester of Montana.

Ah yes, my own home grown elected cockroach from Montana has signed on to this unconstitutional nightmare. I am for keeping jobs in The United States of America, but I am not for "green jobs". They have not worked anywhere else they were implemented, in any other country. And for every "one green" job the companies lost "two regular jobs".
