Like in conference?

If thats true we are screwed again, either the house caved or the senate caved. Because no way in 24 hours did they resolve the differences.

Collins, Snowe, Specter are PATRIOTIC Americans for voting with the Dems according to Harry.

Does that mean that all those that didn’t vote for it are unpatriotic?

Yep. Same exact BS as the very first time months ago.

No?

There is no deal, only commie propaganda

Worse than terrorists. They can hit the entire Country at one time. A terrorist can only strike in a single locale.

Dear FRiends,

In light of what is transpiring in our nation’s capitol this week, more than ever, we need to ensure that places like Free Republic and other like-minded places continue to speak the plain truth. Newspapers are dying and the current administation will either bail them out or allow them to fail. If they are bailed out, they will be even more beholding to the coming socialist agenda. If they are allowed to fail, the powers that be will force the remaining electronic media to fill the void. Local coverage only. No national syndicated news/talk. The “Fairness Doctrine”, like it or not.

After that, the internet. Free Republic. And others.

We need to get this FReepathon over and right now. We need to show that we are serious and will continue forward and thrive, not just survive.

If you can spare a couple of bucks, that would be great...If not, God bless you and please stop by the FReepathon thread and give it a bump.

We’re all in this together.

and obviously all the calls, letters, emails, faxes had absolutely NO effect on their reasoning. Not that I thought it would.

They do as THEY please, not as their constituents please.

They are disgusting pathetic excuses for Senators and the next voting cycle they should be rewarded accordingly.

They live in a bubble. The toxic bubble that is the nations capital

The “stimulus” plan should be renamed the “Welfare Expansion Act of 2009”. It will vastly increase federal spending, but will do next to nothing to alleviate the current, government-caused, economic crisis.

If the Obama administration had any common sense, it would eliminate mark-to-market accounting. If Congress and the president had brains, they would eliminate the federal income tax and all its excess baggage, replacing it with a national sales tax.

The above two actions would result in an unprecedented economic boom.

Ok, I am not getting this. Are we talking about the conference bill being done or something else? Because there is no way that the two branches resolved this in 24 hours unless there was major hankie pankie going on. The bills were way to different.
