    Republicans Shut Out of Stimulus Conference Negotiations

    Republicans Shut Out of Stimulus Conference Negotiations

    Republicans Shut Out of Stimulus Conference Negotiations - HUMAN EVENTS

    Republicans have caught the Democrats in a midnight “stimulus” power play that seeks to cut Republican conferees out of the House-Senate negotiations to resolve a final version of the Obama “stimulus” package. Staff members from the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) met last night to put together the “stimulus” conference report.

    They intend to attempt to shove this $1.3 trillion spending bill through in the dead of the night without Republican input so floor action can take place in both chambers on Thursday.



    I say good.


    Because when porkzilla passes, then causes the recession to become much worse, The Democrats and there new spirit of hostility will have no one to point a finger at to blame.


    What idiots.


    So much for this new tone Obama was going to bring to Washington.

    Republicans are playing this pretty riskily.
    If this bill is even remotely a success, then they are going to have a damn hard time finding their seats in a few years.

    They're doing what they should be doing - objecting to all of the unnecessary and unrelated fecal matter in the bill.

    It's called check-and-balance, and I support it on both ends of the spectrum.

    Well . . .

    Whoever gets the credit or the blame, I've heard for many years that this isn't the way things are supposed to be done in Washington.

    But I get it now . . . it's just not the way Republicans are supposed to do it. The Democrats can do anything they want.

    And again . . . this is the Democrats' Patriot Act.

    Of course, cause you didn't want to play nice with the other children.

    I was just musing over the entire ordeal as a whole.

    It appears to me that Republicans really want the stimulus package to fail, as they are putting as many marbles they can find into the coffer to dump President Obama.

    This instance is just another showing of Nancy as a horrible congresswoman.

    She is an embarrassment to the Democratic party.

    First off, it's not a stimulus package, because it's all pork. So tell us again what we want to fail.

    I agree with everything but that which is in bold.

    I think they want A stimulous plan to work, but rightfully so think porkzilla is not a stimulus plan.
