Yesterday, three Republican Senators joined the Democrats in moving the Spendulus bill through the first major voting hurdle... the 60-threshold vote to invoke cloture.
The Three Republicans who put the Democrats over 60 votes are:
"[Sens.] Specter, Collins and Snowe sold out their 38 GOP colleagues and every Republican member of the House by cutting a deal and giving Harry Reid the 60 votes he needed for this 'trillion dollar turkey' to go through. In doing so, they not only assured the socialist-Democrats now running the country a huge and expensive political and legislative victory, but they stopped dead in its tracks the momentum Republicans had been successfully building with the American people against this proposal. Why, oh why, did we ever stop the practice of tar-and-feathering?" --columnist Chuck Muth
Go here to see how your Senators voted yesterday:
