NEW BEDFORD — After the November election, Democrats will push for a second economic stimulus package that includes money for the states' stalled infrastructure projects, along with help paying for healthcare expenses, food stamps and extended unemployment benefits, U.S. Rep. Barney Frank said Thursday.

In a meeting with the editorial board of The Standard-Times, Rep. Frank, D-Mass., also called for a 25 percent cut in military spending, saying the Pentagon has to start choosing from its many weapons programs, and that upper-income taxpayers are going to see an increase in what they are asked to pay.

Does anyone else appreciate the irony? Why is always the people who would fare worst under sharia law that are putting us at risk for it?

Because they're dhimmicrats, of course.

Oh, Bill.... :-p

I'm still trying to learn more about Sharia Law. I browse passages from the Qu'ran, as well as all religious texts, and don't know enough to comment intelligently. Yet.

I agree with Rep. Barney Frank and cuts in military spending. I understand America spends 42% of its budget, more than the rest of the nations in the world combined.

I would then like to see a good portion of that money support veterans' benefits—good hospitals, education, and VA home loans. That's a better use of money: support the people who fought for our nation.
