Porkapalooza Updates

Update: Things not going well for Harry Reid. Fox just reported that Harry is looking for just 3 Republicans to join him and is targeting well Snowe and Collins … but so far they will not cave. Looking for more head on over to Michelle’s site here.

We now return you to last night’s post.

Michelle Malkin is running updates on Republican Senators who may be ready to cave and vote for the Porkapalooza. It’s close … real close.

Wish they could all be like this. “This process stinks.”


Oh and if you are one of those who thinks “well something has to be done … it’s a crisis!”, read the following and remember how well they spent the first $350 billion.

President Obama’s economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.

CBO, the official scorekeepers for legislation, said the House and Senate bills will help in the short term but result in so much government debt that within a few years they would crowd out private investment, actually leading to a lower Gross Domestic Product over the next 10 years than if the government had done nothing.

    Better: how do we send a horse's head to Pelosi?   (or maybe the other end?) 

    That's a little Godfather humor for those of you tilting your heads right now.
