UPDATE: Omnibus is Dead!!
With congress at a low of 13 percent, the democrats have introduced another bill with massive amount of earmarks and wasteful spending. Yesterday, John McCain speaks out against it. He says, “You vote for this, you put your political future in great peril.”
It’s always interesting to review what has been said in the past, what has been promised. When is a lie not a lie?
Below a discussion back in 2009 on Chris Matthews Hardball about the same subject, earmarks, . Nothing has changed. Notice the excuses that were made back then. What are the excuses this year??
I’ll bet you if John McCain were president today, he would not sign a bill filled with all this pork.
The only thing I can see that has changed since 2009 is an election took place in November, and the republicans took the House taking 63 seats. So let’s put a hold on this and let’s see what the new congress will do.
