Vote Buying in Vegas
Lest you think that money and politics have changed (or will ever change), consider President Obama’s recent decision to use $1.5 billion of your money to buy votes for a desperate Harry Reid.
Reid is getting his butt kicked in recent polls. The Dems are afraid of losing another Senate seat. Las Vegas is full of money morons who bought cookie-cutter homes and condos with junk loans, driving prices up beyond reason. Values have since plummeted. Boo hoo say the politicians. Morons can still vote and Reid needs those votes.
So Obama and Reid have arranged to have more of your tax dollars distributed to state agencies in only five states, Nevada included. (I suppose it would be just too obvious to focus only on Nevada.) The targets for use of your money include “borrowers who owe more on their houses than they are worth.” These are mostly the borrowers who bought with no money down. They will probably receive personal calls from Reid’s office telling them to come get some so everyone is reminded who greased the way.
