We’re Screwed

Congresswoman Maxine Waters thinks bipartisanship is removing pork. Senator Schumer thinks adding a fix to the AMT is bipartisanship. Senator Graham … “We’re screwed” and he doesn’t mean the Republicans.

Feel free to comment.

Bipartisanship is including the opposition in the drafting of the bill and accepting some ideas of others as your own. Eliminating pork in a stimulus bill is not bipartisanship. It is statesmanship. But the country’s taxpayers first. Willingness to fix the AMT is not bipartisanship, it’s a long overdue legislative process but it has nothing to do with stimulus. But I and Senator Graham could be wrong.

    Yeah, it is not really lack of bi-partisanship that screws us. They are bickering about how to blow a couple hundred billion dollars.  When they should be bickering about whether or not the government should be spending ANY of this money  AT ALL.  We are caught up in the democrat/republican conflict and we are ALL failing to see the forest for the trees. And like the man says we are screwed. I appreciate

    They are so clueless…no relevant education or experience.

    We need to get rid of these career politicians and replace them with real people, that understand how the economy really works and can think for themselves – in the interest of the people of the United States.

    The current crew of goofballs only thinks of their reelection, the wallets of their fatcat friends, and the "benefits" that they receive while in office (and afterwards). 

    I have had enough!

    If we are to subsidize the television industry with a "tv converter" coupon program, at a cost to American workers of $650 million dollars, then why are the converter boxes made in China/Asia??? Do you mean to tell me that there are no electronics manufactures, in the United States, left that can do the work? A true stimulus package would require the devices to be made here. There are/were many companies in CT who could do the work effectively.
