This was H.R. 1105, the earmark laden "Omnibust Appropriations Act, 2009"
Disappointing to see so many Republicans voting for it. And I'm not sure if the Dems against it were moderates, wanting less spending, or ultra-libs who thought this wasn't enough.
Who were the 16? They get nasty notes.
Walt Minnick(D) from Idaho voting with the GOP again. I’m starting to actually like this guy. Real tell will be when a gun bill comes up for a vote.
My congresscritter, Capito (R. WV), the ONLY Rep. in my state’s DC delegation, voted for this POS.
POLITICIAN......a four letter word spelled with ten letters!
They have just killed school vouchers in DC, ensuring that no poor kid in DC gets the same quality education as Obama’s kids.
I see Republican Cao from NOLA is doing the bidding of his 90% minority constituency. He’ll be a reliable RINO vote for the ‘Rats in the future.
Sent this to my congresscritter
Re. Omnibus Spending Bill
I would like to thank you for showing me the error of my ways with your vote on the Omnibus Spending Bill. I truly believed that there were some in DC who actually had the good of this nation at heart. I thought that you were one. I was mistaken. Your vote has proven to me that POLITICIAN is just a four letter word spelled with ten letters.
“Rule provides for consideration of H.R. 1105 with 1 hour of general debate. Previous question shall be considered as ordered without intervening motions except motion to recommit with or without instructions. Measure will be considered read. Bill is closed to amendments. All points of order against consideration of the bill are waived except those arising under clause 9 or 10 of rule XXI.”
One hour of debate for a hundreds of billions of earmarks and pork in a bill no one has had time to read.
Egad - what is has this country come to...
How long was this available for review? Seems like it snuck up on us....

My email to my congress critter:
Thank you for staying true to your beliefs.
Thank you for your “NO” vote on Roll Call 86:
“The 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act”.
We must fight them at every oppoprtunity.
I am ready to sharpen the tines on my pitchfork.
With much respect,
My ‘Rat voted against the first round of Porkulus but ended up voting FOR its final form. Now he is voting against. When it comes out of committee, he’ll vote for it again.
I wrote and thanked my congressman (Congressman Aaron Shock)for voting against this pork bill.
I hope they rot in Hell.
At this point, I could care a less about Democrats or Republicans, they have both sold America and Americans down the river!
Where are the Men and Women of character, morality, values, and principles that can truly lead?
