These Democrats have learned nothing. McCain accuses them of having amnesia, but they’re hoping that by 2012, the American people will have forgotten their slimy tactics, insane spending, and as McCain ruefully notes, “dishonorable behavior”:
According to McCain the legislation includes 6,488 earmarks totaling nearly $8.3 billion.
Here’s a link to the website he referred to: Ending Spending.com.
Time to roll out the cots again…
Hot Air: Boehner to Obama: If you’re serious about earmarks, veto the new spending bill; Update: Dissect the bill yourself:
There’s not a chance in hell that he’ll do it given the left’s ongoing tax-deal-inspired freakout about “triangulation,” but I’m really keen to see how The One justifies not vetoing it.
I don’t care if Reid holds them over every day until January 4th. It doesn’t matter. They’re paid extremely well and get lots of time off. It’s time they joined their fellow Americans in sometimes having to work through the holidays.
No budging on this. Or there’ll be real hell to pay.
FOX News is reporting that “All Hell Is Breaking Loose” in the senate after this latest stunt by democrats.
This rogue Democrat Congress is an abomination. And Republicans must block this bowel movement using every available procedural tactic.
Update: Fox News reports that Jim DeMint will require the bill to be read on the Senate floor, which will consume approximately 40 hours. Well done.
Legal Insurrection: Another Christmas Surprise – Dems Roll Out $1.1 Trillion, 1,924-Page Budget Bill
Use every procedural device available to run out the clock on the monstrosity that is the current Congress. The voters who gave Republicans back the House and closed the gap in the Senate expect the current Republican leadership and Republicans in the Senate to do no less in the face of more Harry Reid cramdowns.
And if you thought the fight was just against Democrats, according to The Hill, outgoing Republicans Bond, Voinivich and Bennett, plus Susan Colllins, all have expressed a willingness to consider voting for the omnibus.
Very, very, VERY disappointed with my Senator, Kit Bond. You’re not really thinking of ending your illustrious career with a vote for this dishonorable travesty, are you, Senator?
Listening to Mark Levin railing against this, right now.
“I was in a good mood, today, until I heard about this latest….tyranny!”
“These Republicans go out on the campaign trail sounding like Patrick Henry…they come back to Washington, sounding like Patrick Kennedy!!!”
“How the hell are we going to repeal ObamaCare, if we can’t even deal with a lame duck congress!!!!”
“I’m convinced Harry Reid is off his rocker!”
“The immorality of what these people do…it’s unconscionable!”
