Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.
Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09
“We face the most challenging economic crisi since the Great Depression, yet this bill merely throws money at the problem by expanding existing programs”
Paul Kanjorski (D)PA, 1/28/09 (source)
What a difference a few weeks make.
Yes, we have seen the Congressional Democrat Pigs (and 3 RINO Pigs) at the taxpayer trough, voting in what has become know as PORKULUS (PORK stimULUS). So much for reforming bad habits and spending wisely. This is the BIGGEST spending spree by government in the history of our country. And it was rammed through by Congressional leadership without any Congressman having the chance to read it, despite promises of getting 48 hours to read it prior to a vote.
But that didn’t stop my House Representative, Paul “Free Money” Kanjorski from voting FOR Porkulus, despite having voted against it last month (he vote against it before he voted for it; how Kerry-esque, in a reverse sort of way). Apparently, the above comment from last month was merely him placating voters, to make it sound like he had reservations. Obviously, he didn’t.
And I’m also represented by Senator Specter, one of three RINO’s who voted for Porkulus as well.
Will this be both Kanjorski’s and Specter’s last term? Specter’s numbers are already tanking, although a lot can happen between now and next year for both. And Kanjorski certainly is not on solid ground, given that he barely won re-election last fall against Lou Barletta.
I do predict that Porkulus will not only produce a groundswell of public outrage, but also will sink a lot of re-election campaigns, much like the 1993-94 Democrat anti-gun crusade, which lead to a Republican takeover in the House.
Personally, I will make it a point to vote for anyone BUT a Porkulus supporter, and I hope a majority of others will do the same. Remember the Porkulus….
