Ok, these bozos(Tea Party excluded) are probably going to vote for this monstrosity today. I thought a live thread might be helpful even though the Congressional Website has no information(as usual) on what time the actual vote might be.

Anyone have a link to the content of the bill? Weren't We the People promised to have access to the text of all bills two weeks prior to their vote in Congress? (Something about "the most transparent and open administration" in history ...) I know the ink hasn't dried on this one yet as it's only just been thrown together over the weekend. But I'd still like to read it.

I can't believe the GOP didn't even try to remove the 1 trillion per year in "stimulus" money from the baseline.

Or defund socialized medicine.

Looks like they've accepted both - it'd be 'extremist' not to.

Just called Marsha Blackburn’s office, and they said she is still reading it and is undecided. Told her I hate it.... politely, but firmly.

We HAVE a mechanism to control the National Debt.

It’s call the Debt Ceiling.

USE IT!

Don’t increase it! LOWER IT!

All of the plans that have been considered so far are nothing but smoke and mirrors to mask the fact that the BEST of these plans still allows the debt to increase by about 1 Trillion per year!

All of these lying politicians need to be swinging from lamp posts...
