Obimba to enter red light zone with new stimulus package

WASHINGTON DC - President Obimba thrust his stimulus package into America's red light zones today as he laid out his new package to Congress. The new plan is assured to bring back the American automobile industry, especially the larger SUV and pickup trucks that can carry many people and their many bags.

The new plan will not require a large capital outlay from the government. It is just a new regulation affecting traffic lights.

Ever sit at a traffic light when there is nobody around, and your vehicle is too light to trigger the sensor buried beneath you in the road? This is very frustrating. Most people just buy a larger vehicle when this happens. Bikes and motorcycles are typically too light and do not have enough metal to trigger the magnetic sensors.

'Enter the Obimba stimulus package'

The new US guidelines will set the thresholds of the vehicle detectors to a much larger value. This will mean the average imported car will not trigger the light, and the frustrated driver will have to sit there for hours.

This will result in that driver going out and buying an SUV or large truck so that his vehicle can trigger the sensor next time he drives that way.

This of course will result in many new jobs, and a revival of the Detroit area.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
