Video: McCain On $1.1 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill – “The American People Have Said Enough!”

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

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.

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.

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!”

Linked by Michelle Malkin, thanks!

  2. Some Republicans have pork in this bill as well. These filthly rotten politicians have their middle finger up at every tax paying American. These bags of dung disrespect the very people that put them in office, it’s disgusting. Keep it up, and there is going to be unrest like we have never seen in this country.

  4. Hey, I am a stay home mom. I am so outraged about this power and money grab. Add it to the proposed land and land use takeover proposed and I feel like our country has been hijacked. In the next election cycle my boys will both be driving and I will have LOTS of time on my hands, I thought… But now I realize that I will be very busy working on the election of 2012, starting right NOW….
    Who the HELL do these people think they are? Half billion a page? Do they realize that most of us work hard for a dream of accumulating a million dollars to save for retirement? That we make budget decisions EVERY day? That we see the gleeful waste of future taxpayer funds as a threat to our hard earned retirement savings, especially since Dems have raised the specter of seizing those same funds? Do they realize how Congress is resented? They should know, their approval is lower than Obama’s…
    In short, this latest lame duck outrage, has given me a purpose now that I will be approaching empty nest status. Think I will join that group here in Houston that is trying to purge the voter roll. And a TEA party and whatever phone banking I can do…


  5. @Texas Mom 2012: Your acknowledgment of the budget decisions that are made by hard-working American people everyday is spot-on. Thank you for reminding us about the human element in all of this…
