Your Tax Money At Work

The Senate is preparing to pass a 1,071 page, $790-BILLION dollar "stimulus" this weekend. That's $790-billion dollars of your money they are getting ready to spend. And some of the Senators are admitting they won't have time to read the entire bill. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) doesn't expect any of his colleguages will actually have time to read the whole bill.

And pushing even more is Nancy Pelosi who wants the bill passed before her scheduled trip to Rome this evening. By rushing the bill through, it breaks a promise that the Dems made to have the bill available to the public for at least 48-hours before any vote is taken.

This is our money. This is our country. This is not soley Nancy Pelosi's country. This is not soley Harry Reid's country. This is not solely Barack Obama's country. This is not their government. This country's government was formed on the idea that it was of the people, by the people and for the people. If we allow Pelosi and Reid and their cohorts to continue to hide legislation from or rush legislation through without the input of citizens, that government, as we know it, will perish from this earth.
