Another 2,000 pages, another 20,000 requests for pork - there's better be all hell breaking loose in the Senate. Democrats just don't get it, do they - they lost in November.

The way that Washington is acting is completely out of control, neglecting the will of the American people en masse.

I think the time has passed for passive resistance now because Washington is not paying attention and is now engaged in actively working against the wishes of the American people.

I think the time is coming and coming very very soon for an armed populace to march on Washington in order to take the country back from the communist dictators now in charge of our government and the US Congress.

Wow. How could 100 Senators have written 20,000 earmarks so fast? Especially when they only work 3 days a week.

They need to pass a clean CR based on 2008 spending levels and ADJOURN. What a group of unscrupulous thieves.

They knew the majority of the public was against their socialist schemes, earmarks, and deficit spending before the election so no reason to expect them to be any different after it. The public be damned should be their motto.

You think they actually write anything? Their job is to posture and pose. They have staff to write.

It had better be. But let this stand as a testament to the blatant disregard for the ballot box folks.

"All hell is breaking loose" in the Senate over a 1,924-page spending bill that includes 20,000 earmark requests.

Okay. So let me see if I understand this correctly. If there was a tax cut in this bill, the RATS would be demanding explanations how they would be paid for, right?

Obviously the implication is that taxes would have to be raised somewhere else to pay for whatever tax cuts might be included.

Alright, then. So how are these earmarks going to be paid for? In other words, what taxes are going to be raised to pay for these projects?

Any senator and representative who votes in favor of this legislation should be voted out of office as soon as possible.

Take note America and take down their names.

Remember the names. Memorize them.

Then when the time comes vote them out. Vote them all out who vote to pass it.

And when they read the bloody bill, they need to NAME NAMES as to who has filled this bill with pork...pubbies as well as dims so we KNOW who they are.
If it’s worth putting in the bill, it’s worth defending to the American people...
cowardly congress critters.

Nah. I was being facetious.

They have staff to write.

With some minor input from whatever lobbyist is calling for whatever project, I'm sure.

The “staff” write these things in collusion with lobbyists. Most of the “staff” are ideologues and naive 20-somethings who need their asses kicked by earning a living (figuratively, of course). These subhumans are disgusting.

You use the term very casually, to refer to what these asshats do as "work".
