    Bayh, Feingold Slam $410 Billion Omnibus Bill

    Bayh, Feingold Slam $410 Billion Omnibus Bill
    Wednesday, March 4, 2009 3:30 PM
    By: David A. Patten

    Two prominent Democratic senators announced Wednesday they will vote against the $410 billion, earmark-laden discretionary spending bill, suggesting support for the measure may be weakening across party lines.

    Senators Russ Feingold, D-Wis., and Evan Bayh, D-Ind., now both say they oppose the legislation, which increases federal spending by 8 percent and contains approximately 9,000 earmarks.

    President Barack Obama has said that, if the legislation reaches his desk — it has passed muster in the House — he will sign it.

    “The Senate should reject this bill. If we do not, President Barack Obama should veto it,

    Those three Democrats that have a conscience will cancel out the Traitors from my state and Pennsylvania.
    I hope MORE Democrats defect.
    They will get voted back into office and the other losers hopefully will be in the unemployment line!!!

    One indication of its underlying support: McCain’s amendment was defeated by a resounding 63-to-32 margin.

    NBC reports eight Republicans voted against McCain’s amendment: Robert F. Bennett, R-Utah; Christopher S. Bond, R-Mo.; Thad Cochran, R-Miss.; Susan Collins, R-Me.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; Richard C. Shelby, R-Ala.; Arlen Specter, R-Pa.; and Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Me.




    If I were the media, I would not be so quick to label this as "support" for this garbage........it's more like an underlying non-support, of anything McCain, by members of his own party who have little use for him and want to avoid even the appearance of agreeing with him or his buddy obama.

    Not only that, I'm sure that they are quite resentful over his arrogance in assuring the band of traitors running DC that he has the power and influence to bring the entire party around to their line of thinking.

    McCain has lost all credibility.

    Imagine if way back he did not support that first Pork Bill Bush had...
    I think it would be a game changer. Once he went for it, he lost ground.
    I don't like the guy, he has an evil smile and he is too stubborn to be in charge of anything.
