3 RINO Senators, Ron Paul, and the Stimulus Package
3 Republican Senators have agreed to vote with the Democrats on the government stimulus package. Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, and Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania have all agreed to cross party lines and vote with the Democrats on the stimulus bill. With RINOs like these, the Democrats don’t need 60 in the Senate to avoid filibusters.
In this video Ron Paul discusses the stimulus package and the dollar.
Now, I really wish that those Senators would not go along with this spending bill. However, as Congressman Paul points out in the video, where were all the budget hawk fiscal conservatives for the last eight years when they actually could have done something. Keep in mind that our huge national debt has skyrocketed under a Republican Congress and White House. While the Democrats took control of Congress 2 years ago, there was still a Republican in the White House for the huge bailouts of the banking and auto industries.
The Republicans in the Senate are going to have to grow some backbone or the spending that occurs in the next four years could cripple our nation for a long time. This bill is just the start.
