As it stands [in the Senate], three Republicans are expected to join the 58 Democrats in favor of the bill, and the negotiations may tilt slightly in the Senate’s favor as officials try to keep that coalition in place.Like a bad episode of the television series Charmed, Republicans continue to cast bad legislative choices like bad spells which will continue to ensure that they will remain the minority Party for decades to come and ultimately hurt the American people. (see story)
In the end, the only Republicans whose support [Senate] Democrats won were Mr. Specter, Ms. Collins and Senator Olympia J. Snowe of Maine.—DAVID M. HERSZENHORN
Sens. Susan Collins, Maine, Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania and Olympia Snowe, Maine are three RINOs in the classic denotation of insanity as they attempt to once again to work with Democrats apparently expecting a different result than getting their and the Republican Party's asses handed to them this time too as in 2004 and 2008.
Didn’t these Bush Republicans learn anything from the previous eight years? Democrats virtually undermined the entire government attempt to lose a war and destroyed a Republican President and his Party all in the effort to gain the power that they now wield over this government.
These Democrats withheld their unified support and talked down President Bush and Republicans for eight solid years. They lied about how we got into this financial crisis (which was primarily caused by Democrat policies that Republicans embraced. Doesn't any of this sound familiar?) To this very day President Obama and Democrats continue to blame Bush and Republicans for the problems in the economy which Democrats caused.
This is a Democrat mess! One that they have purposely made in order to defeat Republicans so someone please tell me what sense does it make for any Republican to aide in his or her own defeat and demise?
Helping a Democrat is like a monkey jumping on a crocodile’s back for a ferry across the river after crocodile talks of bipartisanship and patriotism. Undoubtly in mid swim the monkey will be heard exclaiming but why are you eating me Mr. Crocodile the crocodile will answer back with a rancid burp, “Because I’m a Democrat fool!”
If Republicans, all Republicans just stood back and did nothing that would be more helpful and Patriotic than what Sens. Collins, Snowe and Specter are doing in their enabling of their Democrat allies according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office!
President Obama's economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.—Stephen Dinan, Washington Times (see story)In addition to that not one of the 600,000 jobs lost in our economy in January or any job lost subsequently will be saved or reestablished with the passing of this $827Billion dollar monstrosity geared to guaranteed to farther ensconce Democrats in power by billions of dollars of payments to ACORN, the 2010 Census and other Democrat partisan projects in order to continue falsifying Democrat votes and numbers.
Collins, Snowe and Specter did nothing to ensure that these partisan programs would not continue to receive unjustified funding in this so-called stimulus bill.
These three RINOs must be held accountable for their part in the damage that Obama and Democrats have caused and will cause if this Democrat appropriations bill disguised as a stimulus bill is voted on and passed on this Tuesday or Wednesday.
Please use the next couple of days to call and/or email Collins, Snowe and Specter to let them know that we hold them in contempt of the American people for selling us out for the business as usual stick together Washington insiders club that they’ve obviously have chosen over the well-being of the American people.
