The Senate is Doing Nothing But Bribing the House

The Senate passed a pork laden bill they laughingly call a "rescue"... they filled it with pork specifically to entice House members who voted against the "rescue" to see things their way. This is called Bribery. If your Senator originally voted against it, but is willing to vote for it because of the pork bribes, there is no excuse to re-elect them. There is also no excuse to re-elect any House member who voted for that barrel of rendered lard. Look to see if where the integrity of your Congressmember and Senators voted. If they are found to be dishonorable, vote the scum out. Campaign against them. When they are back in their home offices, meet with them, challenge their lack of integrity and purge the government of their filth.

I have to agree with you, this new bill is garbage. One of Florida's senators voted for it so guess who I'm not voting for when he comes up for re-election? This is my pick for the stupidest piece of pork: Sec. 503. Exemption from excise tax for certain wooden arrows designed for use by children. What???????

There are so many stupid bits of pork to choose as the worst, but that one has got to be among them.

What do you have against the perpetually lost? Join the fight to save children from walking around in circles!

I am starting to think the whole bailout thing was a manufactured scam. Look how they mess around with the process, yet life goes on. Other than President Bush and Congess, is anyone else calling for this massive bailout from Government? Have you heard anyone from Wallstreet pleading for this money? Congress gives the picture of a parent bribing their kid. "If you do what I have asked, I'll give you some candy." Shameful, at best. If this bailout bill was not important enough to pass on it's own merit, then forget it. It just shows how sick Congress is. Time to clean things up, I think. djbtol

That is the best reason for us to vote every incumbent out of office rather they voted for it or not.... you are right... it's time that we took our government back from these career politicians...Its not only shameful of what their doing its down right disgraceful...

All I can think about is the many GOOD things that can be done with $983,000,000,000.00. In case anyone's wondering, I checked and that's how many zeroes we're dealing with. Just think about the projects you, or your candidate, stand for. How much health care could that money provide? What could that money do for our schools? How much oil would that buy? Instead of using this disgusting amount of money for things that matter to Americans, they want to pump it into failed industries that have no motivation to change their ways while simultaneously throwing up to 20% of it at various different companies that don't need, or deserve it just to get more votes on board. None of this will help our economy, not in the long term. I think it's shameful that both McCain and Obama are buying into this. Sarah Palin actually seemed to be against it when it was first mentioned, but obviously she's not involved in the voting and got hushed pretty quickly. I'll be watching exactly which Florida senators and Congressman are voting for it so I know who to vote against.
