Pork Barrel Spending Lives Another Day

As expected – since Democrat Harry Reid pushed back the vote on a pork barrel spending moratorium to after midnight – pork barrel spending lives on as the Senate kills the bill 71-29.  And far from being innocent in this, the Republicans did not back John McCain in his support of the bill.  Only 23 supported the bill.  Five Democrats voted for it and Obama and Clinton were two of them.  I applaud them for that.  So as we can see, there is little difference in the parties.  They just want to spend us into oblivion.  On that note, the $3 trillion budget did pass and puts America back in the black.  Not because domestic programs were cut – those were increased – but because the tax cuts will expire in 2010.  I just love our government – too bad they don’t love America!

  1. Hi,
    I like the way you are performing your work .. Its really amazing ..If women didn’t exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning. The topic is really brilliant and the way you have discussed is really fantastic!Money is human happiness in the abstract; and so the man who is no longer capable of enjoying such happiness in the concrete, sets his whole heart on money.
