There’s no CBO count as promised on Wednesday, but the word is that they are desperately trying to get the monster genie stuffed back into a three sizes too small lamp. No matter what the Congressional Budget Office does, it can’t make this trillion dollar boondoggle revenue neutral.
Dennis Kucinich (D) Ohio was a really cheap vote and he sold his for the price of a plane ride. His speech reminded me of Britain’s WW-2 Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, when he returned from Berlin waving a piece of paper with Hitler’s signature on it, raving that he had obtained ‘peace in our time’ while Hitler’s war machine was even then poised on the borders of Poland. Dennis Kucinich is a sellout to his country and to his stated principles… difficult though they may be to find.
Several other Democrat Representatives have responded to the intense pressure being applied by the White House and the party leadership, including Anne Kirkpatrick (Ariz) and Gabrielle Giffords (Ariz). Wonder what the bribe was there? Also, Dan Maffei (N.Y.), Dan Kildee (Mich.), Jim Oberstar (Mich), Raul Grijalva (Ariz.). These folks are going to have to account not only to their consciences but their constituents as well.
Call the Representatives on the list below… call the ones listed above… they can be influenced right up to the last moment. E-mail, fax, write, or best of all for those of you who can’t get to Washington D.C., visits to your local Representatives’ and Senators’ offices are very effective. These Congress critters are going to be heading home for the Easter break very soon. I have the distinct impression from everything I’m hearing that it’s going to be a very hot time when these people try to justify themselves to the citizens of this country.
The house Madame called all of the Democrat women Representatives to her office for a private tete a tete. One wonders if she wore her dominatrix outfit for the occasion.
The Democrat leadership is saying that they can’t look for a vote before Saturday and most likely Sunday.
Rush Limbaugh’s call for patriots to call the Capitol and the Congress resulted in far more than a half a million calls in virtually one day.
Keep the heat on. Don’t let up. We are Americans… we don’t give up… we don’t quit.
