In Short – Will They Be Turned?
As you may know, the gargantuan porkulus bill is sitting in the Senate and Harry Reid is trying to ram it through. It secured passage through the House without a single GOP vote, however, the GOP has at least a foot in the door to keep this irresponsible piece of garbage legislation from seeing the light of day.
But that foot can be quickly retracted – let me give you their names:
• Olympia Snowe (R-ME)
• Susan Collins (R-ME)
• Arlen Specter (R-PA)
These three are being heavily courted by the Senate Majority Leader, who is trying to peel off moderate senators to close debate and push the bill towards passage. These three are being offered quid pro quos in exchange for their favorable vote for the bill.
With a razor-thin cloture vote looming, the porkulus bill could be killed by the Senate. Similar to the $750B bailout bill, the Senate can kill the largest transfer of cash from the private sector to the federal government in the history of the United State.
So, question, Senators Snowe, Collins, and Specter, are you real Republicans? Will you stand up for the beliefs of the Grand Ole Party, or will you, for your own political agendas, join Harry Reid?
If you three vote for this bill, you should just all become Democrats – the GOP shouldn’t want you in the party anymore, because you’re RINO’s now. But if you get some gumption – if you grow a spine and tell Harry Reid where to stick this porkulus bill, well, then you’re still worthy to carry the mantle of the party of Reagan.
Where will you stand? It’s come down to this.
We’re watching….and waiting.
