The full, cave-in “compromise” porkulus amendment of GOP Sens. Collins, Specter, and Snowe finally arrived in my inbox tonight at 11:14pm Eastern.
So, your representatives of the “most deliberative body in the world” have barely a day to digest and debate the 778-page legislative text before rushing to vote on cloture Monday evening.
Like Dave Ramsey says: “Desperate always reap stupid.”
I’m uploading the whole thing for you so you can see it, too.

Get out your hip-waders.
In the meantime, make note of this observation from Justin Hart in response to the earlier chart outlining the Sellout Amendment’s bottom-line spending statistics (which I blogged about this afternoon here):
[figures in the thousands]
Energy & Water: $53,843,000
Financial & Gen. Govt: $10,762,000
Homeland Security: $5,076,700
Labor, HHS, Education: $169,184,000
Military & VA: $7,428,295
Appropriations: $365,629,525 (of course, this one isn’t broken out)
Bottom line: Global Warming, Government Healthcare, Teachers Unions, School Building Contractors, Subsidized Housing, and MASSIVE Pork.
Thanks, Turncoat Caucus.
Update 2:10am Eastern. Invaluable Rob Nepell has put up an easy-to-use searchable version of the “compromise”/Sellout Amendment text online at Readthestimulus.org.
