Dems renege on promise to post stimulus bill 48 hours before vote

I tell ya ... this gives me so much confidence:

yes if only those democrats in the senate hadn't threatened to filibuster if health and school funding wasn't cut in favor of upper class tax breaks

also jesus you're like the queen of selectively posting

e measures passed by the House and Senate differed on a variety of issues. The House, for instance, wanted to spend $14 million on school construction. The Senate, however, didn’t want to spend a dime on that, and nothing survived in the compromise bill.

The Senate, meanwhile, wanted to spend $2 million on developing zero-emissions coal-fired power plants. The House didn’t, and such spending also didn’t make it into the final plan.

But there will be $20 billion in tax incentives for renewable energy during the next decade and $19 billion to help modernize health care information technology. There’s also $21 billion for a 60 percent subsidy to help laid-off workers pay health insurance premiums.

“There is plenty to complain about for everyone, and perhaps that’s the sign of a good compromise,” said U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a Missouri Democrat. “Regardless of party, we all cast our votes with one hand and crossed our fingers with the other.”

he's pretty obviously upset that republicans got the school funding out, something missouri desperately needs

so to prove your point you had to blatantly take a comment out of context

if that doesn't tell you something perhaps you should head back to the nursing home political banter parlor

:rofl: right. it's justified. we simply couldn't survive without an entire new branch of government and the infinite deficit spending that came with it. that's just responsible!

you lost the right to claim you're for small government when you voted for the administration that expanded it the most in 50 years. pubs have turned the idea of small government into a joke.

I actually agree with this...The Republican party acted and governed like Dems...If your going to govern and act like a Dem, might as well vote Dem...I think that's what the country did. The Republicans MUST get back to smaller government and taxation as it's core belief.
