Three Republicans voted in favor of the spending, both the original bill and the conference report: Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins (both from Maine) and Arlen Specter (from Pennsylvania).
Had they not voted for the largest spending bill ever, it would not have passed. Remember their names when you, your children and your grandchildren have to foot the bill for this boondoggle.
If the cost of this bill doesn't concern you, maybe this article by Jerome R. Corsi will:
As the Obama administration pushes through Congress its $800 billion deficit-spending economic stimulus plan, the American public is largely unaware that the true deficit of the federal government already is measured in trillions of dollars, and in fact its $65.5 trillion in total obligations exceeds the gross domestic product of the world.
The total U.S. obligations, including Social Security and Medicare benefits to be paid in the future, effectively have placed the U.S. government in bankruptcy, even before new continuing social welfare obligation embedded in the massive spending plan are taken into account.
Strange - I always thought the Goal was Freedom.
