Government Celebrates Takeover of Stimulus Bill

As most jobs affected by the massive $787 billion federal spending bill passed by Congress earlier this year went to public sector jobs, and not the private sector, government factions celebrated the successful takeover of the "stimulus" legislation.

"The government demanded change," said Vice President Biden before a cheering crowd of coup supporters, "and we've delivered the government hundreds and hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars!"

Biden introduced White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, who repeated his infamous public comments that "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste," meaning that government should exploit trying times to expand the federal regulatory apparatus. "And we have not wasted this chance to waste hundreds of billions of dollars on huge bureaucracies."
