Just a Little Bit of Sugar Makes the Stimulus Go Down for Specter

Stimulus Sellout: 3 Gop Senators Slashed Billions in Tax Cuts; Specter Got $6.5 Billion

In the end, what turned the tide for President Barack Obama’s massive stimulus package was the role played by three Republican senators who took pork over GOP principal.

Michael Steele should tell those traitors IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that they will receive not one penny from the RNC if they vote to pass this bill. Period. Ever.
