Hey, they had more important things to do. Don't you realize that Monday is a holiday for federal employees? It had to be passed today so that those hard-working people in DC could have a well deserved holiday weekend. With as much work as they put in, they deserve it....they know it, so they didn't need to read it. They had holiday plans to get to.
....after leaving for a bit to go vomit....
The Dems have the power now and they are showing that they are not shy about wielding it.
They don't work for us; they work for themselves.
And, it is sickening. Every freaking part of this is sickening.

It wasn't a third, it was 20%. So, how does a tax cut not benefit anyone?
I, personally love when the government stays out of my pocket.

Hey, all you who moaned and groaned about Bush and Blindly elected Obama as his replacement, are to blame. You wanted Change. You got Change. Its called Socialism. Its called required civil service or Brown Shirting or more plainly, Slavery!
Congress is so out of touch with America, but what gets me, is how Out of Touch the Americans who Elected them are.
You have no one to blame but YOU! You allowed them to do this. You empowered them to do it. By sitting on your comfy couch playing Xbox while the Loud Majority took over. "Oh that right? It doesnt effect me right at this moment, who cares if they take it from me."

You bring up a great point. The jobs created will disappear once the contracts have expired. And woes be to the man who has a part-time job who quits it for a full-time/temp job on a government contract, because once the money has ran out, he's just another statistic.
Complaining or even discussing tax-cuts?!!!
... HAHAHA! Guess what, first of all, I LOVE the idea of a Tax-Cut, however you want to call it. However, I won't get my hopes up, the DEBT OF THIS BILL, far and away overbalances ANY tax cut they are going to give us. Even IF you factor the Government Jobs into the equation.

It is rather interesting that ACORN is getting a butt load of money......ACORN? The same ACORN that has been acused of voter fraud in support of Obama? Yup, it's payback time...... Why should they get anything? What could that possilby do to help our economy. How much money is he giving to Catipillar and the CEO still says it won't save any jobs and they will most likely be laying even more people off, this coming moments after Obama told the press the money would help save the 22,000 jobs.....Oh don't forget the good little socialist unions that backed him, they are getting quite a bit aswell.
Oh, this might give us some false hope for a couple of years before we completely crash. Obama, the accidental president. What a joke.

Be Careful with the "Not Consolidating" Opinions.
From Where I Sit, There is Consolidation Going on, All Over The World.
Banks, Natural Resourse Industrys, Retail Companys.
Visit My Signature Thread, 2009 Depression Verified. If You Read Through All the Headlines, You MIGHT See Trends Developing, Supporting the Consolidation Theory Some Hold.

Looks like the bill is only 258 pages, and only half the page is occupied with text.

This is inexcusable. Any government that operates this way is reckless and devious. Shame on them. They are making a mockery of our system of government. I really wish I could express my anger, but it would all get deleted. It IS time for a revolution.
Who said anything about reading the budget plan. This is about the 1100 page stimulus plan that every member of congress voted should be available to the public to look over for 48 hours before it was voted on. That didn't happen, 48 hours would have been enough, especially with all the staff you speak of. But that didn't fit into Queen Pelosi's plans to sneak stuff through then jet away to Europe. Cripes, to think that woman is only two bullets away from being President. *shiver*
