Hold Nancy & Harry Accountable

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, and Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, must be held responsible for the misery they are causing and the harm they are doing to the country

Let’s start with the “Stimulus” package which should have been your first clue.  This 647 page bill should have taken congressmen about a month to at least read and understand. O.K., I know.  That’s a little much to ask.  This bill has thousands of earmarks for things like ACORN, the voting fraud organization.  By the way, they are changing their name to COI to try to distance themselves from the reputation they so richly deserve.  There are little bundles of cash for things like:

$6 billion: for the ambiguous “higher education modernization

$6 billion: High-speed Internet access for rural and underdeveloped areas

$1 billion: Census Bureau programs (to ACORN)

$5 billion: Neighborhood stabilization activities to ACORN

An insurance exemption for builders of pleasure boats longer than 65 feet

$185,000 for coral reef research and preservation in Maui County, Hawaii
$55,000 in meteorological equipment for Pierce College in Woodland Hills, Calif.

$950,000 Myrtle Beach International Trade and Convention Center. Graham sponsor.

$238,000 for the Polynesian Voyaging Society, Honolulu, HI, for educational programs. Sen. Daniel Inouye is the sponsor.
$381,000 for Jazz at Lincoln Center, New York, NY for music education programs. Jerrold Nadler is the sponsor.

There are thousands more, I just put a few here so you can understand what went on.  It was an orgy of spending.  Some of these things seem small but like Senator Everett Dirksen said, “A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon it adds up to real money.”

O.K., then they refused to pass the E-Verify funding bill which would mandate that employers use an online program to check to see if workers being hired are in the US legally.

Next comes the $410 billion Omnibus bill which actually has earmarks added by two of Obama’s cabinet members.

The House passed the AgJOBS bill which gives amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens and their families.

Now socialized medicine is coming.  Please understand that this will make our health system like Canada, France and the UK.  Just ask yourself why, when these folks really need medical help quickly they come to the US.

Hold Nancy & Harry responsible for helping Obama destroy the economy of the United States.  Call them what they are: Socialists.
