Democrat Senators oppose spending bill

Senators Evan Bayh and Russ Feingold are urging President Obama to veto a $410 billion spending bill bloated with about $8 billion in earmarks. Supporters of the bill say that this is compensating for the budget cuts suffered under the Bush administration, but those were different times. It is important to rein in spending and have a few sacrifices. While Democrats have been criticized as reckless spenders by their opponents, here are two that have a sense of fiscal responsibility.

    What,pray tell, happened to the rest of them? Is there not a patriot among them? What obama is doing, as his muslim duty, is to bankrupt the USA ASAP to make our enrollment in the coming one world government new world order palatable and desirable to the ignorant masses of US citizens who must be coaxed out of independent, self reliance into one world socialism: a simple task for obamas' handlers.

    How wonderful, Bayh is not running for reelection, so is fellow Democratic Senators probaly do not care what he thinks while he spends his Campaign Chest. I do not know the status of Sen Feingold, but I do hope that he can convice some of his fellow democats follow his lead. While riding the crest of his new found popularity the President will most likely sign this bill. He gets the public looking one way and stabs them in the back with the other hand.

    I always hope that politicians will vote with their heads...and not for any one party platform. I feel the same about BOTH political parties. *** I wish all of them (politicians) would get their act together and govern in the best interests of the people.... I wish.....

Look at Dodd! It should include Palosi, Reed and Frank!!! They are ALL just a guilty!!! There are plenty on the other side of the isle that needs the door slammed against their backside too!!! It's not all the Dems fault, they just have a larger number of liberals!!! If the people in Washington doesn't start standing for what is RIGHT instead of just being a FOLLOWER of a party, then hit the door Jack and don't ya come back no more!!! We showed yesterday we want OUR COUNTRY back, with OUR ideals! NOT somee other countries!!! Do you hear us now???? We are talking, our grassroots are GROWING!!! If you read the NY Times it said only 5,000 showed up, geee they mush have slept through some it was like 50,000+ there!!! But I can't believe the Times any more anyway!

    I agree that we have to reign in the spending and we should make more than a few sacifices.And if they don't stop heaping taxes on smokers, we are going to get desperate. Both the Federal and State governments are making ridiculous demands on us. And we don't beleive it has a thing to do with the children anymore. I'm running out of ways to cut back on things and I've smoked for almost forty years. I have an addiction and I'm being pursecuted for it by my government. How is that right?I'm on partial unemployment now to and everything is going up.I'm not sure of the wisdom behind the hugh spending proposal but I am gaining faith in our President on a daily basis. I'm from Binghamton, New York by the way.I hate NY government. A really bad thing happened here today and I fear there will be more to come. Everyone I know hates what NY is doing to us.

    I urge everyone to write their democratic and or republican representative and tell then you are fed up with their performance and lack of leadership. They have the only jobs in America where they spend our money and do not have to be accountable for the results. This crazy budget needs to be voted down and re-worked. Mr. Obama is spending $3 dollar for every two he brings in from tax dollars. Soon or later, it tells you that everyone's taxes will need to go up.

    Additionally, we need a date when the far left liberals are going to stop blaming Mr. Bush and realize they are working on Obama's watch now. One of the most alarming aspects of Mr. Obama's big brother governement is it supports people becoming lazy and losing initiative because they will always be bailed out by the Government. Do you really want to be aligned with the French people or the government of France?

    One other pressing issue. The next time you hear Criminal Congressional Leader Nancy Pelosi say "what the American people want is __________." Flood her office with phone calls and emails. Ms. Pelosi does not speak for America. She has no idea what we want because he does not listen. Her head is up her ass when it comes to listening to the American people. For example, Ms. Pelosi states the American...""

For example, Ms. Pelosi states the American people want 100% freedom given to illegal immigrants. She is full of bull shit. The poles of multiple races show over 80% of Americans do not want to give illegal immigrants 100% Amnesty, but Ms Communist Pelosi fails to listen. She is a self serving entitlement driven, greedy, wicked, and unethical member of the "lucky sperm club."

    Where I am from, Ms. Pelosi would be described as someone who does not her ass from a hole in the ground.

    As for the Senators waking up on the democratic side----what took you so long?

    lol -- OUT OF .. HOW MANY !! Pretty scary !! If and only if he's not really a socialist-anti American, then the game Obama is playing is to hope to devalue the dollar in order to pay off the debt and then start anew, which then he could claim ownership.

    Why do you think that it is only one party that supposedly opposes spending? Both parties spend...and sometimes some individual politicos get antsy over it.... That is surprising?

    GW wasn't transfering all our wealth to the lazy and indolent as Premier Obama is doing... GW was the only man who finally chose a time and place to destroy the Islamist Terrorists... these fiends have hated us way before GW became presie Marine barracks in lebenon 30 years ago...the killing of the Israeli atheletes.. the cruise ship (achilles laural) where they threw a crippled old man over board and a lot more... but the idiot left, with all it's vaunted intellect has notably forgotten history... and where were you when "slick willy" Invaded Bosnia (many of us supported his fight against ethnic cleansing) why weren't you whining and puking then! are you saying the freeing of those people was different than the freeing of 50 million people in Afghanastan and Iraq? please.... and by the way my brillant friend... the percentage of GDP (if you even know what that is ) to the deficit under GW was a fraction of a percnt (0.5%) your idiot Premier Obama now has proliferated a GDP of more than 4%... that makes us even with Guatamala and worse than his Home of Kenya...Give it a break and go study history and Socio economics before you flap that tounge!

    Maybe we could invite these two to participate in the Republican Caucus and eject some of the minds Rep's in the Republican party who seem to believe that money comes from somewhere other than the American people. If they "need" these pork projects maybe there should be a referendum vote in the area that feels the "need" for the project andthen those folks can pay for it. As a person who lives in the Northern tier I have yet to have anyone volunteer to pay my exhorbatant heating bills this year due to the "global warrming/climate change" that has frozen us for over 4 months....Wait, I'll have to soon be paying for "carbon credits" on top of the heating bills so then I can go without heat for the winter - firewood here I come - oh carbon credits for that too! Where does it end???????
