I don't know but maybe one of these Democrats can that read it and cut to the chase and tell me what I'm getting out of it.

If their reading comprehension skills are on a par with the most of the Republicans here abouts, it wouldn't have mattered.

It's stimulating a lot of discussion, isn't it?

Actually, the Pres corrected that. He properly renamed it the "Spending Plan". Now, *that* is an example of transparency. No more trying to fool the citizenry. Call it what it really is.

The Bill was 1100 pages, and it was all about paying back Obama's Thugs buddies, Pelosi and Reed wanted it passed so that the American People would not know what was in the Bill!

It is 407 pages long.

We currently have approximately 40 Republican Senators.

If they had divided up the reading, each Senator would have to read approximately 10 pages, take notes, and then review it with their fellow Republicans.

The question is ... what were these Republican Senators doing at that time which prevented them from completing such a simple task involving such an important issue?

All I ever heard was excuses ... such as ... we didn't have time to read it.

Well .... how long does it take to read 10 pages ? About 30 minutes?

Hey Republicans .... you are the ones who voted for these men and women to represent you in government !!!
Democrats didn't read it either.

So many errors on your thread I dont even know where to begin

The final plan was 1100 pages after all of the pork barrel projects were added, it was released one night, voted on the next morning. Republicans protested (by refusing to vote) that there wasnt enough time for anyone to read the bill to analize it, but Democrats, who didnt care, voted and didnt read the bill either.

Maybe you can read and properly digest a trillion dollar 1100 page plan overnight but I couldnt.

The question is, YOU voted for these men and women who voted YES on a bill they didnt even read (Democrats).. So why do you find that acceptable?

Why did Obama Sign it with out reading it?!

The Buck Stops Here - On the Obama Desk!!!!
The Final Responsibility for the Bill becoming Law was Obama's!
He has to take the blame for all the problems including the bonus payments to AIG!
Which was clearly in the bill which he signed!

Look,

Democrats are turning screws tighter and tighter on you and me. They think that we're not smart enough to make decisions for ourselves ..... so Congress will decide for us.

I hope Pelosi chokes on a sandwich.
