Posted on 02/13/2009 7:23:43 AM PST by Saint X
Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.): Democrats made the bill available at 11 p.m. on Thursday night. At 9 a.m. Friday morning, the House begins debate on the bill. If members of Congress actually took the time to read the bill, they would have to read through the night at a rate of 626 words per minute before heading to the House floor. What are the odds of that happening?

At some point, Specter will look up, ala Alec Guinness, and say, “...what have I done?”
No, he won't. Like Dan Rather and the forged documents, these type people have such deep psychological damage, they never see when they do wrong.
Vote it down for that reason alone!
They should put the whole Bill on the internet for two weeks so the people can read it and make up their own minds. The rush to pass this Bill is simply so the people can’t see what is in it. It’s a scam on the people.
There are probably only five or six people who really know what is in the bill. The devil truly is in the details.
That, perhaps, could be done in 48 hours, assuming these reps actually care about it.
Arlen will feel the thump of the mortars momentarily knock him off his feet, get up, dust off his hat, then fall on the plunger. I can dream, can’t I ?
I love my Rep :D. I think I’ll email him and thank him.
I think it is going to be their cover when the details of this plan come out.
It’s all about intentions not specifics. Been like this for decades and decades.
Of course specifics get “modified” over time by building the same crap on top of the original intention, which means more spending.
Modern day European socialism hello, we have arrived with trumpets blasting by the press corps, cheers from the perverted trust fund aristocracy, and open hands raised on high by the dependent class.
"Our hidden provision for "retroactive Primum Noctis"
to favor all Democratic leaders still has not been found by the fools."
they never see when they do AS BEING wrong. .............
I hope your Alec Guinness analogy holds true because someone else blew up the bridge.

That is exactly what I've been thinking. I have also wondered if the Repubs have a group meeting of just them and discuss what are in the bills, etc.
Also, what if none of the Repubs showed up for the debate and vote, would that shut things down? If they boycotted it until they all had a chance to read it before a vote was allowed.
They need to post the rotten thing on the internet so Freepers and other Country loving Americans can tear into and see what is under the decaying leaves of this stinking mess.
Of course, if they did read it, they'd be flapping their yaps to their constituents about how “they know more than we do” , never bothering to enlighten us.
What they need to do is build a bonfire and burn the whole mess!
On the Senate floor.
The rush to pass this Bill / I wonder why obama wants the bill to passed so fast what else is in the works that we don’t know about???
We could only hope for European socialism. This will be like Zimbabwe mixed with the Soviet Union with a dash of Nazi Germany.
On the Senate floor.
LOL! Or be made to eat every page..their choice of condiments, of course.
Isn't that a service their staffs could perform? Give each one a section, and tell them to give it the Reader's Digest treatment.
Democratic Senator Predicts None of His Colleagues Will Have the Chance to Read Final Stimulus Bill Before Vote...
Just called Senator Lautenbergs office 202-224-3224.Joe answered on the third ring.
I aksed him if the Senator was still planning on voting even though he hasnt read the entire Bill. Joe said, yes because he is privvy to the Committee Reports. He knows what is in the Bill.
I asked Joe if the Senator is comfortable with the vote proceeding even though a majority of the Senators have not read the additonal 1,000 pages that were quickly added two nights ago and Joe said, yes, the Senator is comfortable with voting.
The feeling I walked away with is Joe definitely didnt care and the Senator didnt care one way or the other. I am so disgusted.
I told them I felt it was unacceptable to proceed and irresponsible given the reckless way the Bill was thrown together.
It is so frustrating to care more than the Senators do and their Staff. Sickening.
Please call his office if you can. Thanks.
