Republican Representative John Culberson of Texas was on the Glenn Beck radio program this morning. He claims the democrats were urgently pushing for the spending bill to be voted on today, because speaker Nancy Pelosi is leaving at 6:00 p.m. for an eight-day trip to Europe. So Princess Pelosi (to quote Sean Hannity) rushed the vote on a nearly 1,071 page stimulus bill so she can jet off to Europe, and because she wanted to be involved in the bill-signing press conference before she left. The democrats have broken their promise to give 48 hours consideration to any major bill, they have excoriated the republican members of congress for their "lack of bipartisanship" when they voiced their opposition to the bill, some members of congress have berated "we the people" for being against the bill, and now they are about to pass the biggest pork-laden spending bill in the history of the planet without even reading it.
A lot of Americans are angry about not just the amount of our money that will be spent on pork projects, but they're also angry about the way the democrats have gone about getting this bill passed. We hope the angry majority let their elected representatives know the extent of their ire when those representatives who voted for passage of this bill come up for reelection.
