Snowe, Collins and Specter to side against taxpayers on socialist spending spree
By J.B. Williams
Every last House Republican and a dozen House Democrats took a hard-line stance against Nancy Pelosi's effort to stimulate Obama's rush into unbridled socialism and almost every Senate Republican stands opposed as well. Obama's Chicken Little Stimulus Package won't stimulate anything but more government waste and a left-wing power grab, and almost every American taxpayer knows it!
There is absolutely nothing "bi-partisan" about the current legislative process or the so-called "stimulus bill" being produced by that process.
Three token blue state Republicans, all of whom have defected their party principles on many occasions in the past, are selling out the American taxpayer in an effort to retain their blue state Senate seats and buy favor with Democrats for their own pet projects.
The three Republican Senators who plan to support Pelosi's Marxist power grab are Olympia Snowe of Maine, Susan Collins of Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. Republicans...?
While all three Senators are indeed members of the Republican Party, you can see that all three have far more in common with left-wing Democrats than with the party they belong to. All three are typical blue state Republicans.
I encourage readers to contact these three Senators and tell them to stand with American taxpayers for a change, instead of secular socialists across the aisle... Tell them to act Republican, no, American for once!
About Much More than Economic Stimulus
Democrats have all the power they need to run roughshod over Americans in the House, and they clearly plan to do just that. They need three Republicans to help them run roughshod over Americans in the Senate and it appears that they have found those three Republicans.
But this is about much more than just the current leftist spending spree being falsely titled an economic stimulus effort. As you can see, these three Republican Senators are aligned with congressional leftists on the following issues...
If these three so-called Republicans are allowed to act like liberals at this hour, joining Pelosi, Reid and Obama in their effort to hang another trillion dollars in debt around the necks of American taxpayers while squandering even more private resources to payoff leftist campaign support groups, then we will see these same three Republicans side with Democrats on all of these other issues over the next two years. We can expect all of these things to pass...
Snowe, Collins and Specter are once again alienating themselves from their party and they will receive a grand welcome from Democrats who must convince at least three Senate Republicans to vote with them for the next two years, for doing it. Obama will praise them as true "patriotic heroes." The press will make them out to be the only "reasonable Republicans" on the planet! Leftists everywhere will love them, temporarily, so long as they remain useful idiots of the left.
These three Republicans are aligned with liberals on several key leftist issues which happen to be opposed by most Americans, just like the current spending spree is now opposed by most Americans.
If Americans don't engage in a concentrated effort to stop these three Senate Republicans here and now, we will watch them vote with Democrats on all of the other pet issues that Democrats hope to ram down the throats of every American over the next two years.
These three Senators are the key to how much damage Democrats can do to this nation over the coming weeks and months. If we stop them here, and force a truly bi-partisan measure to deal with the current economic challenge to emerge, we will live to fight another day.
If we fail to stop them here, there will be no stopping them for the next two years!
