Obama made it to TV to express how bipartisan this stimulus fiasco is. Yep. All 3 RINOS who voted for it must speak for the entire Senate GOP.
The ZERO House Republicans and ELEVEN House Democrats who voted against it showed more bipartisanship. The fact that we are even calling this crock of stuff remotely bipartisan goes a lot to saying how nice we are trying to be.
The fact is, this bill will kill our economy. More than one economist says it will, and the CBO has the numbers to prove how it will tank us even further. Obama even says those SCIENTISTS who proved that FDR’s spending in the New Deal actually prolonged the depression are wrong. (He, the apparent ultimate economist, is right??) A one-year minimal growth followed by a collapse even further than we are now.
But through it all, we had not heard Obama lie about the bill. He tells it as he thinks it should be. But to stand in front of the cameras tonight and blatantly LIE about there being “Not a single earmark” floored me.
The so called ‘trimmed down’ Senate bill is, actually, $19 billion more than the House. See how that works? Y0u inflate it so you can then cut it and claim you were helping the folks.
This bill is nothing but one BIG earmark. The only reason they got three RINO votes is because the two from Maine are just trying to get a share of the haul for their state- country be damned. And Specter is just an idiot who cannot leave his former Democrat ways.
So the vote will come soon. The cloture vote passed 61-36 with two non-votes. (Cloture means no more amendment submissions, I believe). This means that in the next day or so the Senate will vote on it and send it to House-Senate committee for final drafting.
I’m scared. Really scared. I was just getting used to the USA as she is. Now I’ll have to read up on France and Germany to figure out how things are going to start working.
The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
