The Three GOP Possible Forced Sellouts

Posted in politics by roving on February 14, 2009

Why did the three Republicans vote in favor of the pork bill even after being swamped by calls and email to vote against it? That is what I would like someone to look into.

Did Obama’s people go through the past of some Republicans and pick the three most vulnerable because of something in their past and forced them to go along?

Could it be they were bribed to vote in favor of the pork bill? Republicans who crossed party lines apparently got rewarded. The New York Times reported Thursday that Specter got $6.5 billion for medical research. The senator is ailing from cancer. Funny how millionaires never care about a illness until they themselves come down with it.

The three traitors knew they would be committing political suicide voting for the pork bill but when ahead and did it anyway.  Specter looked like a idiot trying to defend his reasoning defending the pork bill on Fox News.  Maybe his was for selfish reasons. Hoping to find a cure for himself.

The “gang of three” — liberal Republican Sens. Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, and Susan Collins — who handed President Obama the stimulus bill he so desperately needed, apparently sacrificed billions in tax cuts during final negotiations over the measure in order to reduce its cost. Now why would a Republican be  against tax cuts? It goes against the way Republicans think.

“From auto dealers to the home-building industry, big business appears to be the biggest loser in the final economic stimulus plan . . .” The Wall Street Journal online reported, noting that Democrats removed key tax cuts and benefits for business as political payback for Republicans who failed to support the plan.

What is it going to take before the Democrats wake up and see the light?

I would like to see someone dig into the past of the three and find out what was bad enough to force them to go along with the Democrats. For now I want them stripped off their Republican affiliation.

    I’m not sure if the stimulus will help that much in the current economic environment. Economies go through cycles and recession is part of the cycle. I read a good article on the history of cycles at, I think,
