    Vote to pass the Stimulus Bill...

    Another 60-vote majority would be needed Tuesday for Senate passage.

    How calculated and underhanded of the Repubs. They pushed and pushed for more tax cuts and to have other things left out. The dems did so in good faith and the PUBS screwed them. with just these three voting yes. Maybe its time to stop dancing to the Pubs tune and go full speed ahead with out them. Thts what they would do in the same situation.

    Screw these 3 RINO's they should have taken a hike from this porkfest. They raise the house bill by a couple of hundren billion then 'cut' the bill and add a token tiny tax cut. What a joke.

    They are an embarrassment for sure - still, it's hardly got bi-partisan support when only 3 or so Republicans voted YES out of the House and Senate combined.

    If you want to celebrate adding $850B to the debt, great. I got on Bush for being a big spender but Obama makes him look like an old lady who keeps her cash under the pillow. The American people don't like this bill; they like Obama and the Dems for now but your strategy is doomed to turn the voters against the Democrats.

    BTW - Obama ran on fiscal sanity and not pushing debt down to our kids. How soon he forgot.

    uh huh... because you guys have a track record of being so accurate about what America wants the past few years... :rolleyes:

    look, i don't like a lot of the stimulus bill either... and I don't think Obama truly grasps what's in store for industrial nations the next 3-5 years...

    but i have a different view, altogether... and at least Obama's solution isn't to just bomb everyone and take their resources... there's the bottom line difference... Con man leadership would do much MUCH worse right now...

    Obama is such a wuss. Read this famous FDR speech when he inherited a similar clusterf*ck by the previous Republican adminstration:

    yup... my favorite part:

    The technique was all set out in Hitler's book - and it was copied by the aggressors of Italy and Japan. According to that technique, you should never use a small falsehood; always a big one, for its very fantastic nature would make it more credible - if only you keep repeating it over and over and over again.

    The polls don't lie. The people don't like it. Obama has enough equity to stay popular through this vote but if he continues to do what the people don't like that will change.

    Nice. Largest bill in US history. I need a weapon. So, who chops down more forests as president, to print money, George Bush or Barack Obama?
