Bipartisanship is when Democrats and Republicans get together to rob the American people blind.

Susan Collins folded!!!

If true, strip her of seniority and committee assignments. Won't make any difference if she conferences with Dems, and the GOP will no longer have to live with her inane influence.

Then offer her perks to some blue-dog in return for flipping.

Oh, you knew it was coming. The only thing the Dems are disappointed about is they don’t have enough Rs to provide cover.

why is it called a deal? It was always going to pass as the dems already had the votes. All that happened is it look slike Obama can claim it’s bi partisan because he has one Republican onboard. But I doubt anyone will see 1 GOP vote as bi partisan. I mean, the stimulus was ALWAYS going to pass with the margins the dems have.

C'mon people. You knew there would be some kind of bill. At least 780 Billion beats 1.2 Trillion. It all sucks and it won't work, but at least it's a few hundred billion less debt, more or less./s

Bipartisanship is when Democrats and Republicans get together to rob the American people blind.

The late George Carlin said it best, "The word 'bipartisan' means that some larger-than-usual deception is being carried out."

Exactly! People of Maine have been calling against the bill according to reports which is why I asked if CNN said that Collins folded. A short time ago Hot Air had her wavering with Specter and Snowe still with the Dems.

One or two votes from RINO senators won’t make a difference as long as the GOP leadership gets out in front and points out that there was near-unanimous opposition to it from the GOP. The GOPers who vote against it will still be able to run on it.

From Hot Air with more details:

A group of Senate moderates working on an amendment to cut up to $100 billion in spending from the economic stimulus package have completed a tentative proposal that will be presented to Senate Democrats at a 5:30 p.m. caucus meeting, Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad told reporters. “There is a proposal that is sufficiently fleshed out and we will have a caucus and discuss it,” Conrad said after emerging from talks in Senate Majority Leader Reid’s office. Democrats hope the proposal, developed by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Ben Nelson, R-Neb. [SIC], will attract several GOP supporters and be acceptable to all Democrats, which would allow for passage of the plan as early as tonight.
