START THE PRESSES----PARTISAN PORKFEST BILL ABOUT TO PASS
SENATE DEMOCRATS PERSUADE THREE REPUBLICANS TO JOIN IN ON LARGEST GOVERNMENT SPENDING BILL IN NATION'S HISTORY
Government printing presses will be running at full throttle in the months ahead as President Obama and a partisan Democrat Party have spent (gambled) most of their political capital on a pork-filled spending bill they claim will stimulate this nation's struggling economy. With the bills final passage no longer in doubt, the Senate will vote on Monday and then send it back to the House for a joint conference committee that could put the final tab around $900 billion dollars. The House passed their version last Tuesday 244-188 with every Republican and eleven Democrats voting against the measure. With $700 billion already expensed out in TARP money, and now this staggering amount, the new Democratically controlled government will have spent close to two trillion dollars. There is also talk of Obama pressing for another round of TARP give-away. All this under the guise of "stimulus and recovery". As this past week rolled on and the people of this nation became more aware of what was in the bill, support dropped to only 37% in favor. This did not stop Harry Reid, (and Barack Obama's evening address claiming we needed to pass this bill or a catastrophe was imminent), and the Democrat Party from convincing three weak Republicans from standing on a principal of fiscal responsibility.
The term "bi-partisan support" may be attempted to be used in the media and some deranged liberal Democrats, but make no mistake, this great American porkfest is owned by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and every Democrat that made their payments to those who invested in electing them. In this process, it's the people of this nation that are forced to pay for this irresponsible act. Not one word in this legislation was written that explained where this money will come from or how this government was going to pay it back. There should have been (at least) some money allocated to new printing equipment. These old presses are going to be worn out in no time at all.
