    Re: Republicans Shut Out of Stimulus Conference Negotiations

    I saw somewhere the total you might get in the cuts in the bill are about $5 a week... so $260.00 a year.

    Some will go well its better then nothing..a hang on a bit.

    Bush Tax Cuts you enjoy now will be allowed to run out. This will cost the average family about $2500 a year in higher taxes.

    Oh not done yet..Obama has a Trillion dollars more in his own spending proposals which will require higher taxes on top of the expired Tax Cuts.


    IOW you're all be taken for a ride.

    To the Dems, working together is telling the Republicans everything they want, forcing it down their throats, and then expecting them to accept it. That is the Pelosi version of bi-partisanship.

    Nobody has had time to read the massive bill. All 1000 pages.

    The risk for Republicans is supporting this Pork Factory.
    Supporting government waste.
    Supporting government intrusion.
    Supporting a bill with laughable tax cuts.

    There will be a recovery... this just delayed it.

    The history of such intervention is abysmal.

    What fascinating denial and historical ignorance; could you please show ONE bill that was passed during Bush's Presidency that didn't have tremendous bi-partisan support and the voting record for those bills?

    You can't can you? Carry on; your clown like defense of the indefensible is quite amusing and telling about the mental state of the Liberal left.

    umm... doesn't that show that dems are more willing to by bi-partisan than repubs? Besides I thought I was responding to the particular practice of telling the opposition to sit down and shut up when they're in majority. try to follow along.

    Nope, it shows that Bush was far more willing to talk with Dems about bills and incorporate their ideas than the Pelosi-Reid bunch in Washington right now.

    You HAVE GOT to be ****ing kidding right? I don't think Bush ever ONCE reached out to Dems while Obama did so on day one and several/many times since and it's been less than a month into his presidency.

    You could prove me wrong by providing a link though.
