The measure passed 244 to 188, with 11 Democrats and 177 Republicans voting against it.-- Paul Kane and Michael Shear, Washington PostUnconstitutional usurper President Barack Hussein Obama attempted to get his Chicago $819 Billion dollar schmooze on with House Republicans but it was to no avail. He held closed door meetings the day before the House vote on his so-called stimulus package with House Republicans attempting to persuade Republicans to forget about Rush Limbaugh and just rubber stamp his $819 Billion dollar mixed bag of Democrat wish list goodies and some actual economy boosting measures. (see bill)
It was important to Obama and the Democrats to have a bipartisan face on this bill which of course was written by Democrats. This was important because when Americans realized that this is not the economic stimulus that was promised, no this is actually economic “porkulus” and Democrats would like to be able to say that everyone; Democrats and Republicans thought that this $819 Billion Democrat boondoggle was a good idea.
But wait, I know that you didn’t hear it in the media but bipartisanship was achieved regarding the unconstitutional usurper’s “porkulus” package. That’s right! Both Republicans and Democrats agreed that this is a bad idea; they’ve decided that this is a train wreck going somewhere to happen. Designation Senate next stop. Choo, choo!
And though the bill was rubber stamped by the majority in the House controlled by Democrats, 177 Republicans and 11 Democrats in a bipartisan fashion said no to the Democratic Jackboot and refused to goosestep behind Nancy Pelosi and the unconstitutional usurper Barack Hussein Obama. (see story)
That’s right 11 Democrats joined 177 Republicans and said no to the frivolous spending items in the $825 billion package. Frivolous spending you say? Well apparently not to the Democrats but I would think that most Americans would object to ACORN, those thieves of modern day elections, being earmarked to receive $4.19 billion for "neighborhood stabilization activities" in the Pelosi/Obama “porkulus package but it’s in there. (see story)
That’s not all, Illegal Aliens are getting in on the deal too. Tax payer’s rebates up to $1,200 include cash returns for illegal immigrants who pay taxes.
Under the plan passed by the Democrat controlled House, illegal immigrants who qualify as "resident aliens" and earned a minimum of $3,000 would be eligible for rebates of between $300-$600, FOX News has learned.(see story)
I’ve already alerted you on yesterday (see story) on the numerous indulges that Democrats have larded on this bill but this is normal fair for Democrats. Don’t you remember it was Democrats who attempt to laden down President Bush’s military spending bills with pork too. Apparent this is standard practice for Democrats. They will attach their frivolous and wasteful spending to any bill. (see story)
The story here is that the hard work that the unconstitutional usurper put in giving dinner and cocktail parties in support of his “porkulus package did in fact create bipartisanship the only thing is the bipartisanship was against the unnecessary big government spending that Democrats are attempting to put on the backs of the American people. This bill represents cost greater than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined and it will be saddled on the backs of our children and our children’s’ children.
Bipartisanship in the House said NO to the Pelosi/Obama stimulus package and even though the package passed on a partisan majority vote, if bipartisanship is the measure (as Democrats attempted to make it before the vote) then the day was won by Republicans and Democrats who worked together attempting to protect the American people from the biggest appropriations bill disguised as stimulus package in American history.
