780 Billion $ stimulus package deal by Senate

This is shocking to me. This is early spending , deficit spending. There is much more to come . What if there is a big natural disaster or terrorrist attack? There is no money for these. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D966D55O0&show_article=1
Much of this looks like pork , which Obama now defends.

No votes yet

It's like I said on another forum immediately after the election....the dems already HAVE their filibuster-proof majority, due to RHINOS like Kay Bailey Hutchison, Olympia Snowe, and Arlen Specter (the last two of whom are voting for porkulus).

I really figured he'd be one of the RINOs supporting "Porkulus". I'm glad to see he can be a real Republican once in a while. We might not be in the position we are now if he had done it more often!

I'm glad the conservatives are staying away from this thing. The debt and inflation this bill will create will require conservatives to cut up the credit card in 2 years.

At least it took Clinton a few months to show his true colors. BHO has done it in weeks! This really is change we can believe in!

Neutered in 2, out in 4. This is not a socialist nation.

he was sobbing uncontrollably !! I asked, "have you read ANY , Adam Smith , in your life '? He ,WENT APPOPLECTIC !!

Welcome to Opposite World. Voinovich voted FOR the Bush tax cuts that created the current debt

Pink Slip

The Bush tax cuts increased revenues, they didn't decrease. Sorry, but it's a fact. Check with the Congressional Budget Office.

Problem was, too many Republicans thought even MORE spending was the way to go. Unlike lockstep Dimocrat voters, conservatives like me stopped voting for RINOs, and they lost power.

Unlike the Dimocrats, we eat our own rather do anything and everything to stay in power.

But I assure you, we will be back! Hopefully we won't have gotten full blown socialism by then.

4 years and out baby!

"The Bush tax cuts increased revenues, they didn't decrease. Sorry, but it's a fact. Check with the Congressional Budget Office."

Sorry 'Burbs, but facts are stubborn things.

"Congressional Budget Office data show that the [Bush] tax cuts have been the single largest contributor to the reemergence of substantial budget deficits in recent years."

Sen. Voinovich doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected in a state turning socialist anymore. Of course he can now stand on principals in which he does not believe. I am very glad he is leaving in 2-years.

as for those who keep harping on the "Bush tax-cuts" that have created the deficit...that is just not true. Check the Dept of Treasury reports, reducing tax rates at ALL LEVELS brings in MORE money. It is counter-intuitive I know, but you have to understand human nature, which I don't think Liberals do. If the government "punishes" people for making a lot of money (tax the rich), then people will make just enough for their survival. If you reward people (decrease taxes) for working hard then they will work harder to make more. This is just such a simple concept. Look at your own lives...do you work harder or less hard if there isn't anything in it for you? I mean come on. how hard is this to understand? Even John F. Kennedy knew this and proposed tax rate reductions that were passed after his death. It works!

For those of you who do not want the "Bush Tax Cuts", please write a check for the refunds you received over the last 8+ years and send it to mommy government so that mommy government can then turn around and give it to Big Banking, the Evil Wall Street blood-suckers, and the Big Three Automakers so the Big 3 can build more factories overseas!

The rest of us who get off of our butts, work hard, keep our finances in check, and try to live the American Dream without help from others will be happy to keep our tax cuts and keep more of the money that we earned.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

The trouble is that when another Republican Congress and Republican President are in place, yet another round of doubling the nation's public debt will be performed, as massive borrowing and spending will take place. Tax cuts are irrelevant when such huge spending happens. In fact, since Repukes prefer to BORROW to increase their spending, they cost more than the Dem's spending plans do, since borrowing incurs the cost of credit.

Dems and Repukes can poke at each other all they want, but TOGETHER they are destroying this nation.
