Welcome to the New Bipartisan Congress

Today the U.S. Congress passed a 787 billion stimulus bill.  TheDemocrats finally agreed on a bill they liked last night, and passed the 1,071 page, 8 inch thick bill today.  The bill passed the House of Representatives 246-183.  Once again, every single Republican voted against it, and they were joined by a mere 7 democrats.  This bipartisan bill received a grand total of three Republican votes in the entire U.S. Congress, the votes of three of the most liberal senate Republicans, who joined the Democrats and let them pass whatever they felt like.  Without Senators Specter, Snowe, and Collins suporting the stimulus bill, it wouldn't have passed the senate.

This clip from Boehner's floor speech against the stimulus bill illustrates the insanity of what our congress did today.

I'm glad people like John Boehner are standing up to the crazy spending liberals.

Keep up the informative blogging!
