“The longer a piece of garbage lays out in the sun the worse it stinks,” said Republican Representative John Culberson (R-TX), referring to the Obama stimulus. “That’s why the bill was hidden and kept off the Internet.”
“This is a crime of deceit put upon the American people,” he said.
“This bill was intentionally hidden from lawmakers and the public.”
“This is one of the largest outrages ever committed,” Culberson said.
“Nobody read this bill before it was passed,” he said.
There should be a law against that.
“We are borrowing this money from Arab oil states and the Chinese,” said a Democratic congressman who voted againt the president’s stimulus.
The House of Representatives passed the Obama stimulus today.
China gets rich. Obama gets lucky. And taxpayers and their children and grandchildren get fu****.
Culberson made the following statement:
Today I voted against the largest spending bill in the history of the United States Congress. This bill violated House rules, was crafted in secret by unelected Democrat staff, and gave the American people only 15 hours to read nearly 1,500 pages. All so Speaker Pelosi could make her trip to Italy.
This bill is also full of pet projects and wasteful spending. How does $300 million for golf carts help stimulate the economy? Economists from around the country have said this bill will do nothing to stimulate the economy and it’s easy to see why.
In just 18 legislative days, this Congress has spent over $1.1 trillion dollars and vastly expanded the federal government. For the rest of the 111th Congress, I will continue fighting to protect the American economy and your hard earned tax dollars from the free-spending Democrat majority.
