Scroll for updates…Sellouts on the Senate floor 7:30pm Eastern…
Details of GOP Sen. Susan Collins’ “compromise” “stimulus” proposal are coming out. This is a Mt. Kilimanjaro-sized crock of you know what. Total cost of this “pared down” bill is $1.175 trillion.
Let me repeat that: $1.175 trillion.
This figure does not include the nearly $50 billion added in Senate amendments during the last two days.
So in the name of fiscal responsibility, Collins and the B.O. Republican contingent are selling out America with a plan that costs $7 billion more than the House Crap Sandwich Supreme.
Are we ready to say the F-word* yet?
Oh, and one more thing. Sen. Levin vows that the few cuts that have been made during Senate debate will be restored in the House-Senate conference.
Stimulus kabuki theater plays on….
Update 7:30pm Eastern. Sellouts are on the Senate floor. Harry Reid praising Sen. Collins.
Where is the “compromise?” Who has seen it?
When will the voters who will pay for it get to see it?
SHOW US THE BILL.
No backroom deals before a vote.
