House Approves Another $410 Billion in Spending With 9,000 Earmarks– $1.2 Trillion in 12 Days
The House just approved another $410 billion in spending with 9,000 earmarks after approving the $789 billion Generational Theft Act just 12 days ago.
The House has approved $1.2 trillion in spending in 12 days.
The vote was mainly among party lines:
Obama and Congressional Democrats are expected to spend $3.27 trillion before they are through with their bailouts.
FOX News reported:
The Democratic-controlled House approved $410 billion legislation Wednesday that boosted domestic programs, bristled with earmarks and chipped away at policies left behind by the Bush administration.
The vote was 245-178, largely along party lines.
Republicans assailed the measure as too costly — particularly on the heels of a $787 billion stimulus bill that President Barack Obama signed last week. But Democrats jabbed back.
“The same people who drove the economy into the ditch are now complaining about the size of the tow truck,” said Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass., pointing out the large increase in deficits that President George W. Bush and GOP-controlled Congresses amassed.
Rep. McGovern, of course, does not want you to know that Democrats have already tripled the “debt left by Bush” over the last two months.
