President Obama signed the $26 billion dollar bailout package for teachers unions that will be paid for mostly by cuts in the food stamp program and the Department of Energy’s renewable energy loan guarantee program.

The House vote went mostly along party lines passing with a 247-161 margin. Two Republican’s voted for the measure three Democrats voted against the bill.

With the bills passage the big losers were renewable energy advocates which took a $1.5 billion dollar cut to help cover the costs. This on the heals of the Department of Energy’s renewable energy program taking a $2 billion dollar cut from the failed cash for clunkers program.

But the group that took the biggest hit were those people on the governments food stamp program which has grown astronomically over the past year as high unemployment continues to grip the country.  The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamp program had their funding reduced by $12 billion dollars to help pay to prop up the teachers unions.

There are currently 41 million Americans dependent on the federal assistance program and they lobbied hard to defeat the bill, but were unable to get enough Democrats to vote against it.

The big winners for the passage of the bill is somewhat clouded. It’s clear that the teachers unions were by far the biggest winners as were fiscally irresponsible states that didn’t make the cuts necessary to sustain their states budgets. The other big winners ‘could’ be Democrats themselves as they are bound to get a windfall of the bailout money flowing back to their elections campaigns this election season from the teachers unions.

While Democrats are ensured a lot of that money returning  to help them with their campaigns, the question is will the American people who are already angered over the constant bailout of banks, Wall Street, car manufacturer’s and now teachers union’s see this as a good thing. The teachers unions had already received a bailout as part of the stimulus package and now they’re getting another one to help keep 160,000 teachers on the job at the expense of 41 million people who are on food stamps.
