What the Hell, Mr. McConnell?

Was Mr. Bush standing over all you Republicans with a live cattle prod when you signed onto giving away hundreds of billions of us taxpayers' money (in theory)- and years of debt left to our next generations- to a bunch of crooked bankers and other big business people to do with as they wish- with no accountability to those of us who are footing the bill? And now you want to balk because King George will no longer be in a position to wield an enormously disproportionate amount of power over the citizenry?

You do not represent the majority of your constituents, and you don't give two shites about the common good. You should be ashamed.

Republicans threaten to delay stimulus
By Andrew Ward in Washington
“We should have a simple test: will the yet-unwritten, reportedly trillion-dollar spending bill really create jobs and grow the economy – or will it simply create more government spending, more bureaucrats and deeper deficits?” said Mr McConnell.

As Senate minority leader, Mr McConnell will become the most powerful Republican in Washington after President George W. Bush leaves office, at a time when the party is struggling to agree a new direction.

Many Republicans are eager to reassert the party’s fiscal conservative principles, which were tarnished by the Bush administration’s heavy deficit spending even before recent bail-outs for the financial and car sectors.
