This stimulus package is absolutely absurd. The Democrats should all be impeached for this package.

If they are following up with “but, ......”, it is good news.

Scroll to the end. The Dems want to give money to the telcos and energy companies by subsidizing infrastructure outbuilds.

Use the Dems’ namecalling right back at them: they are in the control of Big Telco, Big Energy, and Big Voter Fraud.

The ACORN stuff is a quasi-money laundering scheme to get the taxpayer money back into campaign funds for Obama. Disgusting.

Burn the phone lines up!

(USA Today | 2009/01/28) Obama faces first challenge; Wins few GOP converts at Capitol on eve of stimulus vote today

(quote) Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del., said there could be as many as 10 to 15 Republicans supporting the package, but added, "If I had to bet, I would bet zero."

Obama just promised transparency via a new website (Recovery.gov), but that site says nothing will be posted until after the legislation is passed. How is THAT transparency? Sort of like saying, “I’ll tell you what is in your meal after you eat it.” You can barf all you want later, but you’ve still eaten a s*** sandwich.

The package’s current incarnation calls for roughly two-thirds to be in the form of new spending on everything from unemployment aid to construction projects, with the rest consisting of tax cuts for individuals and businesses.

Hmmmpphhh

Oh how quickly we forget. Right after Clinton was elected into office he got Congress to pass the largest tax increase in American history. It was that package that led to the GOP takeover in 1994. I say, “Let them pass this monstrousity of a bill,” and then watch America rise up in arms when they finally see all the pork that was passsed in the name of “economic stability.”

Is he strongly opposing the bill? Thanks.

Ironic that this thread shows a picture of dead pigs. When I watched those “business leaders” supporting Obama at the press conference it was like watching piglets at the teat. Especially that comment about not trying for “perfection” in this bill. Translation: “The heck with America and it’s socialist future. I want “Mine” Now!”

exactly
ACRON might get billions and then that goes back into getting phony elected again and doing more fraduelent votes along with their registrations

This is such a scam and I’ve e-mails and called senators and reps all morning and last night.
Even Snowe got two calls and an e-mail from me and I’m at the bottom of the country while she’s at the top.

target reps and senators who are up for reelection , Rinos and red dog Dems especially the new ones.

All I’ve been doing is this last night and this morning, the only way we can get this to fail is to put as much pressure as possible on to these reps and senators.

Remind them that they are up for reelection and if they are a Dem remind them that they are supposed to be working for the country and you even if they are not your rep.

"...”Republicans only want to give tax breaks to the rich and never want to give tax breaks to the poor.”

Obviously, the poor don't pay taxes. He means to say, "Republicans are not in favor of redistribution of income in support of a Socialist agenda."
