McCain proposed this ammendment to H.R.1105:
|From Page S2608 of the Congressional Record:
The Republicans that need to be scolded are:
I get the feeling from these guys that they are just playing a shell game.
Politicians are such scumbags. I hope the Republicans who voted for this get hauled over the coals by the citizens of their states.
Change SCOLDED to :" SEVERELY WATERBOARDED WITHIN AN INCH OF THIER SOON TO BE OVER RINO POLITICAL LIVES" , and I'm with ya.
That’s the vast majority of Republican Party politics in a nutshell.
Why should they want smaller government? They’re IN government.
All those Republicans listed needs to go. They’re either too socialist, or too power hungry and playing politics. Either way, we don’t want them around
Specter, Collins and Snowe, bought and paid for. They are *owned* by the dems.
Not just scolded. KICKED OUT of the Republican party
It isn’t difficult to imagine how each of these politcians would fare were they running their own businesses and actually INCREASED spending while business was in a downturn.
Bond is worthless, since he is retiring after he finished his term. I am not surprised by his vote.
Bayh voted for i t??
My jaw just hit the space bar...
So this amendment would have frozen spending at 2008 levels?
So did McCaskill.
For life, usually.
Talk about derangement syndrome. You can’t just disagree with someone over an issue and then give credit when due. The man tries to do something worthy, and all you can do is stike the same cord.
I disagree with him on the border/illegal immigration and a few more, but this was an action that he should be commended for, not condemned for.
When he said that he had great respect for Al Gore, did you bother to find out what type of respect? Did he respect him as a former VP? I don’t have any respect for Gore, but I respect the office. You should find out how things work.
Oh, and don’t bother sending any nasty you’re-not-a conservative/real-American nonsense. You’d be wrong on all of it.
Looks like it. Good for him for trying.
Perhaps this advice from Saturday Night Live will give the RINO the most basic education about how money works...
In fact, it should be required for anyone applying for a mortgage! (Required by the bank, NOT the gubment.)
The main purpose was to extend the extension of last year’s budget. This would allow time for debate over the new godzilla budget.
But NOOOOOOOO, we wouldn’t want to give the public time to see what’s hidden in the new budget.
I never said that I agreed or disagreed with McCain. The "post" you are referring to is the banner for the ping list. If any of the folks on the ping list have something to say about McCain's amendment, fine, whatever, but at least they know about this amendment.
Of course, you just assume that I'm deranged.
