Democrat Money Laundering (Re-Distribution)… Pet Projects, Political Pay-Back, Earmarks, TARP II, Porkulus II, etc…
It is all the same old Liberal Spending attempting to be couched in new terms and that is all! Whether it be a Governor, a City Mayor, or John Q. Public putting forth the “suggested” need for Government Spending doesn’t matter. Couching it as “Shovel Ready” also doesn’t change the Fact that it has been someones Pet Project, for potentially years prior to this point | Read More »

Burris Dares Harry Reid Again
Roland Burris may not have many friends, but he doesn’t have much to lose. He’s 71, so doesn’t have to consider how the fight over his place in the Senate might affect his electability down the road. His Senate appointment revived a moribund political career, so it’s not as if he’d be favored for some other office if he gave up the seat. He’s the | Read More »
A New Twist to the Burris Saga; Porkulus to be Signed Today
President Obama is scheduled to sign (or already has signed) Porkulus. Three Senate liberal Republicans, Collins, Snowe, and Specter, let it happen. But so did another key vote, Democrat Roland Burris, Obama’s tainted replacement to be the U.S. Senator from Illinois. As I had mentioned here, Burris voted for both versions that passed the Senate last week. You may ask, so what? A new twist | Read More »
Porkulus Fraudulently Passed
A new twist has been added to the Roland Burris saga as our “illustrious” junior Illinois U.S. Senator conveeeeniently forgot to mention that he was hit up by Blago’s brother for a $10,000 campaign donation. Of course, Burris wouldn’t be a U.S. Senator if Democrats in Illinois, the U.S. Senate, and the White House hadn’t of caved on getting Burris installed by the corrupt and | Read More »
Good morning, Senators Collins, Snowe, and Specter.
Jim Geraghty is quite blunt about the consequences of Sen. Kennedy’s being absent for today’s vote, and Sen. Gregg’s return to the Senate: “Guess what, Sens. Snowe, Specter, and Collins? You are providing the decisive votes.” And Senator Reid is worried about this. He’s trying to scare up another GOP Senator to give cover to these three – something that even his own people are | Read More »
Reid to Proceed With 60 Votes?
CNN’s Political Ticker reports that with Ted Kennedy apparently unavailable for a Senate vote tomorrow, Harry Reid is trying to line up one more Republican to vote for the Democrat spending bill. The concern is that without Kennedy, the bill has only the minimum number of votes required to pass: 60. And the three GOP supporters had made clear that their support was conditional on | Read More »
‘Stimulus” Has $8 Billion for Harry Reid’s Re-Election Campaign
How much can you hide in a 1,434 page conference report? Quite a lot. According to Bloomberg, Congressional leaders managed to squeeze in a tax break of ‘up to $10 billion’ that General Motors has been looking for: GM won a provision that will erase a tax liability of up to $10 billion that would have resulted from restructuring efforts, said Senator Debbie Stabenow, a | Read More »
Blue On Blue Warfare
Is this how the next, great, governing majority in America acts? Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C) has further ingratiated himself with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — not — by declaring that Pelosi and Harry Reid “failed” the bipartisanship test on stimulus. “In order for us to get the confidence of America, it has to be done in a bipartisan way,” Shuler said in Raleigh following an | Read More »
BOHICA – Bend over, here it comes again. As everyone knows, the Senate worked late last night to line up a "deal" on the Porkulus bill between three Republicans (Collins and Snowe of Maine, and Specter of Pennsylvania) and representatives of the remaining 56 Democrats and 2 Independents (Lieberman of Connecticut and Sanders of Vermont). Based on what I saw, the other 38 Republicans don’t | Read More »

Now we know why Democrats don’t pay their taxes.
They’re voluntary, according to Harry Reid. I would’ve titled it Fred Fred Fred Fred Fred Fred Fred Fred Fred Fred, but that was already taken.
Who’s In Charge Here?
In the debate over the ‘stimulus,’ Barack Obama’s biggest problem is that he has not wanted to take the lead on the legislation. For weeks Congressional Democrats complained that his reluctance to set out his recommended legislation was slowing the process. When all was said and done, he never did reveal ‘his’ bill; he simply communicated his priorities to Congress and let them carry the | Read More »
You think you have the votes, Reid? Fine.
Then just go ahead and pass that debt bill of yours, over our objection. RIGHT NOW.
The Other Political Battle
Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) is one of the 11 Democrats in the House to vote with every Republican against H.R. 1, the Multi-Generational Theft “Stimulus” American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Cooper and about 50+ other Blue Dog Democrats signed a letter critical of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) methods of ramming this bill through. He went so far as to admit on the radio Sunday: …the | Read More »
Harry still thinking like a loser on his debt bill.
Or maybe he doesn’t want to win this one. Would you, in his shoes? Via AoSHQ: Reid to GOP: It’s your fault if stimulus stalls As the $820 billion stimulus package heads to the upper chamber, Senate Democratic leaders are launching a pre-emptive strike. In a Thursday afternoon news conference, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged Senate Republicans not to line up against the bill, | Read More »
Democratic Boondoggle Seeks To Lock in Leviathan
Let’s just be honest about the monstrosity labeled the stimulus package: It will not stimulate the economy in any where near the fashion the Democrats claim it will (if it manages to do so at all). It is not even really designed to do so. It is instead an attempt to grow the size and reach of government and cement it there for generations. The | Read More »
