Last year we Joe Biden, the Stimulus Sheriff, went on a big “Summer Recovery Tour” to promote all the great things a trillion dollars worth of debt spending was doing for America.

This year, Obama should send Biden on a similar tour — except this time to collect back taxes from stimulus recipients.

From the General Accounting Office:

We found the following: (1) Thousands of Recovery Act contract and grant recipients owe hundreds of millions in federal taxes: At least 3,700 Recovery Act contract and grant recipients–including prime recipients, subrecipients, and vendors–are estimated to owe more than $750 million in known unpaid federal taxes as of September 30, 2009, and received over $24 billion in Recovery Act funds.
(2) Examples of Recovery Act recipients with unpaid federal taxes engaged in abusive or potentially criminal activity: For the 15 cases we selected for further review, we found abusive or potentially criminal activity…

Sure, but it was a small price to pay to totally turn around the economy and keep the unemployment rate down. Oh, wait…

The Stimulus might also be referred to as the “Barack Obama’s Cabinet Member Training Program.”

    Great point Doug. After a superior leader and thinker like Dick forever improved the now expanded role of VP, it seemed assured a Dhim VP would surely follow suit?

    After all, according to The Left, -nothing- went on in the Bush Administrations without the VP's full knowledge and consent! Only made sense someone they viewed as 'competent' as Joe would -personally- oversee the ajudication of these FUNDS!? Not. Epic Fail.

    What we need to do every day between now and Nov. 2012 is REMIND all these clowns that voted for Obie, they got NOTHING out of the deal! And every BIT as much a debt burden as those of us can't stand BHO! Oh they might have gotten some crumbs or a few extra weeks of unemployment but NOTHING on the scale his cronnies GOT! Hammer. Hammer. HAMMER!

    Yep, ol` Joe is quite an investigator; he found 15 cases out of 3,700 to further review. You`d think someone could bump into a loaded tree and have more than 15 apples fall out !

    Ya know, it's nice that a schizo with the IQ of a canteloupe can find gainful employment and actually think he is useful – and serve as VPOTUS. Always remember, If Bozo Joe actually did something – it would cost us boatloads of money.

    Yes, for us, it`s nuthin` but the best that money can buy. This quality of P and VP doesn`t come cheap !

    Remember, we’re talking about coming from generations of Kenyan goat keepers. This is not Zulu warrior stock, breeding over the decades.

    More like learning life’s lessons from keeping, raising and herding Kenyan chickens while nibbling on dung beetle bon-bons.

    Mmm, mmm, mmm.

    "……dung beetle bon bons."

    Can you imagine ? And no Diet Dr. Pepper to wash them down……..
    No doubt, in some minds, reparations are owed !
