These are the only Republican senators supporting the stimulus bill. I am making a list and checking it twice.
Sen. Susan Collins - R. Maine 202-224-2523
Sen. Olympia Snowe - R. Maine 202-224-5344
Sen. Arlen Specter - R. Pennsylvania 202-224-4254
They are not from my state of Massachusets; I can't vote for or against them.
I have allocated two $10 bills for each of them. When they come up for election, I will be giving $10 to their primary opponents, and if necessary, $10 to their Democratic opponents.
If they are going to waste our resources, raise my taxes, and decrease my liberty, by voting for a bill they haven't read, then I would rather have Democrats in their place, so that the responsibily for the coming difficulties is laid squarely on the philosophies that have caused them.
It is too difficult keeping philosophies straight when the Republican and Democrat labels are confused. This is my contribution to truth in labeling.
These Republican congressmen just voted for Cap and Trade legislation, a 1500 page bill that only a few in the Democratic leadership had read, and certainly none of these Republicans in name only. This bill taxes energy, the largest tax increase in US history.
