Crap, crap, crap…our country is in trouble now! A thousand plus page bill, that no one has read, now looms over our economy like the Angel of Death. Thanks for nothing liberal Democrats! God bless the ones that voted against this monstrosity.
Handing the new administration a big win, the House Friday passed President Barack Obama’s $787 billion plan to resuscitate the economy.
The bill was passed 246-183 with no Republican help. It now goes to the Senate where a vote was possible late Friday to meet a deadline of passing the plan before a recess begins next week.
All but seven Democrats voted for the bill—a 1,071 page, 8-inch-thick measure that combines $281 billion in tax cuts for individuals and businesses with more than a half-trillion dollars in government spending. The money would go for infrastructure, health care and help for cash-starved state governments, among scores of programs. Seniors would get a $250 bonus Social Security check.
Told that no Republican backed the measure, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs reacted by citing another number: “3.5 million jobs that we look forward to saving or creating.”
I think it’s a tipping point in history. The Democrats have set themselves up for failure and it will take at least a dozen years of conservative administration to recover. To me, the fact that the press secretary can only spout hype when presented with the political division that is facing our country only highlights how out of touch they are with reality.
