  • I think it is bad enough that we had 3 Rep.vote for this bill. But a complete sham when not ONE Democrat voted against it. Not one. It just makes me wonder what kind of deals and conversations went on from Nov. 4 thu this past week. Some serious issues of favoritism, paybacks, and future earmark spending plans to be pushed through quietly were discussed and promised for EVERY DEMOCRAT to vote yes. The issue of 3 RINO's is bad enough, why aren't we discussing the fact that NO democrat voted against it? The real people had an approval rating of the bill of 35%, that in NO WAY mirrors what their representatives did on the hill. To me, it seems Obama's promise of favors granted in the future outweighed the fact that these Democrats knew they faced the possibility of losing their next election by voting against their constituents.

  • didn't read it but I'm assuming you mean the stupid remark on the pork in the bill.
    Of course it isn't true. Americans are smart enough to know our money is being frittered away. Even Democrats don't all agree this Porkulus is the right way to go. Schumer has my nomination for Poster child for term limits. The guy has lost all connection with ordinary Americans

  • LOL Schumer the Schmucker! LOL This just shows the extreme disconnection these folks have for American people! Honestly I believe that they thought that NObama was voted in that ANYTHING they do will be passed with ease, after all NObama owes them! They think that because they have the majority and a Dem pres, we shouldn't question their motives or their porkalicious addictions!

  • I guess he'll find out next election whether or not people really care. And so will Snowe, Collins and Specter if he is still alive then.
