    As I have said a million times we need to cut Federal spending down to the bare bones of what is constitutionally required. And cut taxes/pay down the deficit with the recouped money.

    Yes, that would push more spending to the states which would have to raise taxes/fees but then states and/or counties and/or cities can pay for what they want, not bull**** from Washington.

    Bingo BF. The GOP has so lost it's place. This is expressly why you can't sign your life away to any single party.

    McConnell needs to go, Thad Cochren should be ashamed of himself.

    .

    [size=+3] This is why we have computers, telephones, and the good ol' U.S. Postal Service: write, call, fax, and do it early and often until these dimwits get the message. They are just in self-protect mode now; they think they have to protect their own pet pork or the "other guy" is going to get it.

    Just say "NO" to ear-marks. We ain't no cattle and have no need of "ear-marks"!!!

    :mad:

    McConnell and Cochren were they guys trying to push this through. It is the RINO senatrs like Stevens from AL who need to go.

    And if McConnell can't get stuff done, it is time to get a new leader.

    I agree with you on Ted Stevens.
