Pelastuspakettia huoraamassa.


Viikko sitten Pusikon Ykän jengille oli helvetinmoinen kiire pelastaa Vapaan Maailman ammattitaitoiset pankkiirit ja talousnerot.  Alkuperäinen pelastuspaketti viikko sitten oli kolme sivua pitkä ja se ei mennyt läpi.  Uusi pelastuspaketti on 451 sivua ja se hyväksyttiin (tässä paketti PDF failina: latestversionayo08c32_xml.PDF).  Miksi se nyt hyväksyttiin?  Tässä yksi osa vastausta: kansanedustajat lisäävät omia lempihuoraamisiaan pakettiin, kuten esim lisätään tukiaisia vaikkapa ”poistamalla valmistevero tietyiltä puusta tehdyiltä nuolilta, jotka on suunniteltu lasten käytettäväksi”.

tai muutetaan Puerto Ricon rommintuottajien verotusta.

Ja lukiessani pikalukuna jotain kohtia vastaan tuli tällainen yllätys: SEC. 114. SPECIAL RULES FOR REFUND OF THE COAL EXCISE TAX TO CERTAIN COAL PRODUCERS AND EXPORTERS.  Jos ymmärsin oikein niin hiilentuottajille ja -viejille palautetaan maksettuja valmisteveroja  hintaan 82,5 senttiä per tonni, lokakuun 1,1990 ja tämän päivän välillä maksetuista veroista, muttei kuitenkaan palauteta enempää veroa kuin mitä he ovat maksaneet veroa.  Tämä voi olla ihan fiksu päätös, tai sitten ei, mutta siellä se päätös istuu, ilman mitään keskusteluja…..

Vapaan Maailman tyyliin kuuluu niputtaa erilaisia lakeja yhteen siten että kansanedustajat äänestävät koko lakinippua ”juupas” ”eipäs” äänillä.  Se tekee tietenkin maan hallinnan tehokkaaksi kun äänestyslippusia ei kulu kilotolkulla.

Minä ei ole mitään hajua siitä kuinka hyvä tai huono itse tämä pelastuspaketti on (pelkästään pelastuspakettiosa kasvoi 98-sivuiseksi eepokseksi). Mutta minusta ilmassa on pahasti kusetuksen makua kun pakettiin liitetään kaikenlaista rojua ilman mitään julkista keskustelua – toisaalta tämä jengi ei kyllä osaa edes keskustella mistään koska kukaan ei tiedä mistään hönkäsen pöläystä…
