Every Republican in the House voted "No" on the stimulus bill. This is a great, but small, victory for Conservatives. A small win in the Pork War of the current administration and Democratically controlled Congress. Now as not to get myself into too much hot water I want to go on record as saying I feel for the people who are hurting with job layoffs, loosing houses, and the like. I don't believe the Federal Government is here to "bail you out" I have seen too many stories of people who have been laid off and started their own business, hunkered down and cut household spending, and did what ever it took. As one man said on TV this morning, When God Give you lemons make lemonade! Start squeezing people, you can do it!
Now on to the good news of the stimulus bill. Eleven, that's right eleven rock solid, America First, Democrats voted against the Bill. These "dirty dozen-one" deserve our support. They are going to catch pure Hell from President Obama, his supporters and other Congressional Democrats. I say SUPPORT these America First Democrats.
F. Allen Boyd of Florida
Bobby Bright of Alabama
Jim Cooper of Tennessee
Brad Elsworth of Indiana
Parker Griffith of Alabama
Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania
Frank Kratovil of Maryland
Walt Minnick of Idaho
Collin Peterson of Minnesota
Heath Shuler of North Carolina
Gene Taylor of Mississippi
If any of you live in the states these courageous men live in, google their name, call their office, write them a letter and or email them. They need to know Conservatives appreciate their stand against the stimulus bill.
Don't forget to put pressure on your Senator regardless of which party they are affiliated with. With enough support a couple Democrats can help get this bill defeated and more reasonable package up for discussion. Let them know we, Americans, are tired of the Pork!!!
Thank You and God Bless America
