Spending Plan (formerly Bailout)

I'd like to take a quick moment to commend the Republicans in the House of Representatives for standing their ground and voting against the Spending Package being touted as a Stimulus Package. Not a single one of them voted for this farce of a bill.

This package is 88% earmarks and pork. There is very very little money in there that will actually help the American Citizen make their way through this economic downturn. It is more of the same. Further, we can't afford it.

If the Government really cared about stimulating the economy, they'd deign to let us keep more of what we earned and allow us to use that money to pay each other for things we need, or as a business, to pay our employees.

Instead, more of the same idiocy.

Thank you Republicans, for standing your ground. Keep it up.
