Biggest Spending Package in the History of the World

Congress took the Stimulus package behind closed doors to prepare the final version. They’ve set it for a vote today.

What happened to the promise of “transparency?” Why aren’t we allowed to see what is in this revised package? Congress is expected to do a blind vote today. “Don’t read it, just vote for it! Otherwise the world will end!”

I am furious at this spending package. We’re told economists agree it’s necessary; that’s not true. We’re told a catastophe looms if we don’t approve it, but this solution *is* the problem. The amount of pork, we’re told, is not important to Americans. The other provisions such as the universal health care provision are just slipped in without debate.

And the final pillaging of the American taxpayer begins today and we march onwards toward Marxism. And we’re not even allowed to read the bill.

Call your congressperson today. Demand the bill be posted for 72 hours before a vote.
