Hurry, Gang! She Has To Catch a Plane!

The House just passed the porkulus bill. Once again, not a single Republican voted for it, and seven Democrats voted against it, as well. One Democrat voted "present"... no idea why.

On Wednesday, the House passed (unanimously, btw) a resolution that the bill would be available for public viewing for 48 hours before a vote. The final bill was 1071 pages long, and the final draft was released last night around 11pm last night. And they passed it today... after about 12 hours... but there was a good reason... San Fran's Grand Nan had to hop on a plane to Rome. She's gonna get an award, doncha know?

Rep. Boehner had a good point.

There is no way that any of the Representatives stayed up all night to read that bill.

We didn't get 48 hours to read the bill... but lobbyists had 24...

It looks like the Senate is going to rush to vote on this, as well... and, no, they haven't had time to read it either.

If you're interested in reading the whole nightmare, you can go here. There's also some analysis.

Anyone want to bet that President Obama will forget his "5 day" promise? Since it's so important and all that...
