got this in an e-mail from worldnetdail.com
I find that I'm just not suprised by these tactics anymore.

" A group of liberal lawmakers met secretly... literally behind closed doors, and announced that they had reached a "deal" on the so-called "stimulus package" on Wednesday!

What you're not being told is that Republican lawmakers (including Members of the House-Senate Conference Committee) were EXCLUDED from this deal-making session!

We couldn't make this up!


According to Connie Hair, writing on HumanEvents.com:

"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... . 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..." [Emphasis Mine]

Hair goes on to quote Congressman Mike Pence:

“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.” [Emphasis Mine]

Later, we found out that some Republicans WERE in the room (the most likely suspects are Senators Arlen Specter, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe - the three Republicans-In-Name-Only who sided with the Democrats and saved this horrendous socialist "porkulus" bill from a well deserved death).

But according to HumanEvents.com, Senators Charles Grassley and John Thune also confirmed that they DID NOT participate in these secret behind-closed-doors meetings.

That means that - at the very least - the ENTIRE Republican House delegation of conferees and AT LEAST two of the Republican Senate conferees were EXCLUDED!

But that's not the half of it. This so-called "stimulus package" is turning into even more of an Orwellian nightmare!

After reaching a “deal” to rectify differences in the House and Senate versions of this so-called "stimulus package," liberals in Congress now want to SHOVE it onto the floor of the House and the Senate for a QUICKIE VOTE BEFORE ANYONE EVEN HAS THE CHANCE TO READ IT!

We don't know what's in it... you don't know what's in it... most of our elected officials won't even know what's in it!

That's NOT a "deal." THAT'S TYRANNY!

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, Barack Obama and liberals in Congress may think they have a "deal."

But I say "NO DEAL!"

Make no mistake, the fate of this "porkulus bill" is STILL UNCERTAIN! Support is VERY FRAGILE!

That's why our elected leaders need to hear you say "NO DEAL" one more time and they MUST hear from you NOW because we only have hours to kill this horrendous bill!

If you've ALREADY sent Blast Faxes or made calls to the Senate, please do so AGAIN. If you HAVEN'T made your voice heard yet, this may be your LAST CHANCE! Time is running out!

Use the hyperlink below to send your personalized faxes to Barack Obama and the Republican and Democrat Leadership of the House and Senate!

Tell them in no uncertain terms that the American people DON'T want them to "tinker" with this evil bill or to try to "fix" it. The American people do not want any "compromises" or "amendments" or ANY AMOUNT OF LIPSTICK PUT ON THIS PIG OF A BILL.

The American people want this so-called “stimulus bill” DEAD... A STAKE DRIVEN THROUGH ITS EVIL HEART! Tell them - to borrow a phrase from former First Lady Nancy Reagan - they just need to say "NO" and stop this liberal boondoggle!

Specter, Olympia, and Snowe are going to be primaried out this term. They will not be up for re-election in th next vote. There are already concerted efforts by the RNC to ensure they do not get re-elected. They signed their own death warrants with respect to their office. Besides, they have been there long enough. Throw 'em out back, I say.

Yeah, right after the vote on HR1, I called my rep and asked some very pointed questions about the closed door meeting.

I was told that he wasn't invited to that meeting, didn't participate, and wasn't informed of what went on.

Dunno that I can believe it - would you admit to doing so? I wouldn't.......

As you all may or may not know, the bill was signed by his majesty yesterday in Denver. For something so critical (according to him) he sat on it for three days before signing it waiting for the photo op. That's just more BS (Barbara Streisand) by this man! So much for so called change. Spectre, Collins, and Snowe were the Senate RINO's that signed it.

The only good news is not one Republican member of the Congress signed it as well as a few Democrats. Hooray for them. When this thing goes under, and it will, the Republicans can campaign on the fact that they had nothing to do with it. This will get worse before it gets better. I am not a doom and gloom guy and I am positive about the future, it's just going to hurt a bit for awhile.
