4162This is outrageous, I have added extra comment where comment is due . . .

Update 12:45pm Eastern. Some new bullet points from Hill GOP staff outline what’s been added and removed:

· $9 billion for school construction was added back in (originally cut by Nelson-Collins)

 ($9 billion to force school construction that the schools do not want nor need)

· $5 billion increase for the state fiscal stabilization fund (originally cut by Nelson-Collins), making it a grand total of $53.6 billion

( State “PET” profect funding that had been removed like Pelosi’s pet project to save swamp mice in San Francisco) 

· $2 billion for neighborhood stabilization program, money for groups like ACORN

( oh yes, can’t cut those home modifications loans so those who never should have gotten home loans can be saved from forclosure for another 6 months)

· $1 billion added back for Prevention & Wellness Programs, including STD education

( I’m sorry, but if you are not responsible enough to abstain or practice safe sex, that should NOT be my tax problem)

· Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research was added back in, leading Americans down the path towards healthcare rationing (63 patient advocacy groups signed a letter voicing their concerns with this provision)

( the day the government tries to tell me or my doctor what kind of treatment I get, is the day I go to jail or die trying to fight it)


· Money for highways and bridges was cut by $1 billion from the House-passed level

( so much for shovel ready projects, well we knew this wasn’t really a shovel ready profect in the way it was sold)


· Tax relief to help middle class families and small businesses was sharply pared back in order to increase government spending. Public opinion over the last 4 weeks has shown that Americans overwhelming believe tax cuts, and not government spending, are a better way to stimulate the economy.

( I want to know when we actually voted on this and what proof they have for their conclusion, talk about living and governing from La-la Land)

· Approximately $75 billion in true tax relief was CUT from the Nelson-Collins package. So, while the overall size of the package may have gotten slightly smaller, the spending actually increased.

( And there you have it, the true test that complete Government Control is only a few short legislative votes away!!! BUH BYE  FREEDOM, It was great while it lasted!!!)

Are we really going to take this!!! NOT “I”

If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)


I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)


Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have … The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)
The worst thing you can do for those you love is the things they could and should do themselves.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)
