Republicans Shut Out of Stimulus Conference Negotiations

by Connie Hair

Republicans have caught the Democrats in a midnight “stimulus” power play that seeks to cut Republican conferees out of the House-Senate negotiations to resolve a final version of the Obama “stimulus” package. Staff members from the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) met last night to put together the “stimulus” conference report.

They intend to attempt to shove this $1.3 trillion spending bill through in the dead of the night without Republican input so floor action can take place in both chambers on Thursday.

I spoke with House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-Ind.) moments ago about this latest version of Democratic “bipartisanship.” Pence told me, “I think the American people deserve to know that legislation that would comprise an amount equal to the entire discretionary budget of the United States of America is being crafted without a single House Republican in the room.”

How many Senate RINOs will go along with this? Probably, just enough for the Dems to get away with it.

Oh it gets better,

have you seen the latest video, of our so called 'so concerned for us and our interests' government?

Any who complain about the stimulus [Five Year Plan-forced collectivization via gun] are now the 'chatting class',

so much for respect for the peasant eh!

So much for the bipartisanship Obama called for.

The stimulus is a fraud. It can't be amended or fixed or anything. It is a giant fraud that's it.

Lyn -- I deleted your original comment because clicking on your name linked to a site IBA would vehemently oppose & never promote.

As your comment did not reflect that site I reposted it under my name.
