Your stimulus dollars at work

When Obama supporters tell you the great things the stimulus brought, remind them of the Denver tree giveaway.
“This fella said, ‘How would you like to have a tree in your yard?’ And I said, ‘Really?,’ “ said John Backlund, who lives in Denver’s Cherry Creek North neighborhood in a home worth more than $700,000.
Backlund said he could afford to buy his own trees but a government worker was going door-to-door trying to give away trees, so Backlund agreed to take a tree.
“Too good of a deal to say no to. I was happy to get the free tree,” he said.
