Wonder how much more they tacked onto it.
Susan Collins and Arlen Specter are there speaking in favor of the deal.
I was wondering why that a rainbowed unicorn just flew past my window.
They are talking on Fox now. When I see them I think terrorists. Is that out of line?
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.
So do we get our 72 hours to figure which orifice they are screwing us in or what?
You mean “We the People”...Shame on you for even thinking about it!!
I’m having serious problems typing coherent sentences. Strike ‘that.’ Maye I’ll head to the Special Olympics with Biden.
No, either they are with us or against us, and its pretty clear they are against us.
Have the Republicans seen it, yet, Harold?
No...Bambi wants to sign on President’s Day.
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.
Questions... do you see any repubs at the mike in front of the cameras?
There is no deal, only commie propaganda
I just saw Arlen Specter utter the words “Republican Moderates.” He saw stated that “Republicans hung tough.”
Deal .. or
Exactly. I'd bet it was the House so they could get the Porkulus RINO Three...
Watching Republican moderates on CNN state how well they negotiated.
I think the least they can do is give us a courtesy flush.
Deal: 5 wolves and and 2 sheep deciding on lunch.............
I won’t believe it until a Republican (non-Rhino) comes forward and says so.
‘Rats, Joe Lie-berman & three RINO’s...whoop-de-do...
and NONE of these clowns will be alive when the final payment is made on the HUGE debt they have left us with!!!
Yea, well we all know what MUST BE DONE come November,2010!
It’s time to “take out the trash!”
“Liberalism is just Communism sold by the drink.”
They’ve made a deal!!!
Now, everyone bend over, and think of England.
Susan Collins was so proud of her role. Shameful...
They really are putting on a show for the cameras...
Worse than terrorists. They can hit the entire Country at one time. A terrorist can only strike in a single locale.
And you know what? The Dow is moving up a bit of the news.
Now THAT is stupid.
This bill is not going to work. Period.
Just wait until the news sinks in.
They should have waited until the close of market to announce this.
Can “Centrist” Dems AKA Jim Webb pay for this in Virginia, or is VA now Lib territory due to carpetbaggers.
When I see them I think rapist.
The RINOS caved - AGAIN - and accepted a reduction in tax cuts from 40% to 32% of the Porkapalooza bill - something they said they would NOT do...
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
Spector, Collins, and Snowe are DISGRACES to the Republican party. No backbone AT ALL. They bent over and took it, instead of STANDING UP and saying ENOUGH. Bastards, disgusting bastards
Acorn IN or OUT!
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.
Sarcasm is about all I have left now.
More like communist revolutionaries who have just seized control of a country.
They didn’t cut any of the lard. They removed some of the Republican sponsored tax cuts. Thanks Arlen.
Where is Fox News on this. Have they said anything about it?
Belly up to the trough boys!!!!!!!!! This entire Congress is a joke if they came to a decision this quickly. Bama must have scared them. If the GOP stands against this I will be surprised. This is our friggin money. How dare these people do this? This is definitely redistributing OUR money!!!!
Collins, Snowe and Specter, please tell me that there seats are toast next time around!!!
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.
coincidence we have a budget deal announced in California shortly after this “New Deal” went down in Congre$$ .. once they knew what their cut of the PORKULUS was headed their way.. bada beem bada boom
What?...their constitentents have returned them to office for decades and decades and decades.
Blame your fellow citizens.
Moochers and Looters all.
We do not matter, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT FEAR US.
