Kyl voted for open borders last Spring too. He appears to be a faux conservative.

The Senate really is a brothel isn't it. And if you ask them, they're all virgins.

I hate to say it, but he was going to vote for it. He had come out saying he would. All I can say is, at least ACORN isn’t getting the 20% or so. Say what you will, McCain did get House Republicans involved into a worse bill (not that I feel any better about this one).

My God give House Republicans the strength to vote against this and let the rats be solely responsible. This is why it’s crucial to win back the house and senate. The only way to get rid of this is to have the votes to do it. And we need someone in the White House who will do it. We will in Sarah Palin.

Its time for a TAX REVOLT !!

I hope this comes back to bite each one of those who voted AYE in the ass.

This could be the new IRAQ WAR. The RATS complain about the cost of the war, this is more.

It was just being waved around on the Sean show.

A 450 page monstrosity of targeted tax pork. Stuffed with special favors to favored constituencies.

Same old, same old.

Both of my gutless senators voted for this POS.

Kay Bailey Hutchison - you wanna run for Tx Governor? I'll never vote for your socialist @ss.

Cornyn - never again will I vote for you. You are a disgrace to Texas and The USA. You spineless weasel.

It’s been a pleasure to run my mouth with other true blooded conservatives here at fr. Now that the senate has sold down the river I’ll attempt to learn the new pledge of alligance to the rulers of the universe in wall street.Thank you Bush, Paulson, obama, McCain, and the rest for letting me know that Washington will always be run by the elite and for the elite. Please let me have at least one bowl of rice a day.

everyone calm down. We all know how McCain is and if he wins the presidency there will be more disappointments. However, he is much better than Obama. Palin is great and the VP for her is a great start to a long career.

Oh yeah, I hear that one billion was for the presidents discretion. So if Obama gets elected ACORN and others will be getting their money anyway.

He had come out saying he would.

McCain promised that if a pork-laden bill crossed his desk, he would veto it. A bill with more pork than the entire (insert your favorite pig metaphor here) actually crosses his desk, and he approves it. So much for that promise.

HMM the vote hasn’t started yet and it is 9:36 EST. The first vote was for an amendment to the bill not the bill itself.

Folks we may not like everything in this, but we have got to pass something.

If we don’t do something to calm the markets and the nervous American public, we WILL fall into a deep recession.

Did you see the Auto Sales numbers today for Sept? It wasn’t because of “tight credit”. The last 2 weeks of Sept was horrible sales wise. After the financial meltdown happened, people freaked and stopped buying autos. These auto numbers are just the tip of the Iceberg. Wait until 3rd quarter sales and financials come in a few weeks. It will be horrible. People are so scared, they are only buy the bare essentials.

So even though I don’t like it, we have got to do something fast.

Unfortunately the republicans are not in the majority of the house or the senate. I think they did the best they could. This senate bill is better than the house one. I hope the house adopts it on Thursday.

Lay off McCain; he had to do this. Go ahead and don’t vote for McCain, and get Obama. That is scary my friend.

McCain, Obama, Lieberman.... and passage. No surprise.

You think any Senator actually read the 450 page bill?
Highly doubtful.

The Senate is in a world separate from the rest of us.
They don’t have to listen to the people.
They play by their own rules.
