Net Right Update on the "Stimulus" #TCOT

Unbelievably, Stimulus Bill Getting Worse: While even President Obama has indicated that he hoped the stimulus bill could be “strengthened” in the Senate. The version produced by the Senate Appropriations Committee actually contains even more waste!

Undecided Democrats on the Stimulus: As of this posting, here is the list of Democrats that are undecided on the Stimulus in the Senate. This information comes from activists on Congress Whip. These may be votes that we can flip if we apply pressure!

A Permanent Minority?: Despite losing—badly—in the past two general elections...despite having just seen off a very unpopular president... and despite now facing an extremely popular Democratic president, inside sources say that Republicans who met for a 3-day weekend retreat in Virginia this past weekend were anything but glum.

GOP Senators Waffling on Stimulus: On our Congress Whip project, we have determined a list (which I expect to grow) of Senators that are waffling on the current Stimulus bill in the Senate. These Senators need to be pressured to VOTE NO.

When the cats away the mice will play.

Clearly, the cats are the Republicans. There are not enough "cats" (Republicans) to stop the "mice" (the Democrats) from raiding the cookie jar (the American taxpayers' pockets).

The moral of the story??: Democrats are vermin.
