Vote No on the Economic Stimulus

Petition forwarded from John McCain.

Dear American Citizens,

Yesterday, the Senate began debate on an economic stimulus package that is intended to get our economy back on track and help Americans who are suffering through these difficult times. Unfortunately, the proposal on the table is big on the giveaways for the special interests and corporate high rollers, yet short on help for ordinary working Americans. I cannot and do not support the package on the table from the Democrats and the Obama Administration. Our country does not need just another spending bill, particularly not one that will load future generations with the burden of massive debt. We need a short term stimulus bill that will directly help people, create jobs, and provide a jolt to our economy.

I believe we need to evaluate every bit of spending in this stimulus proposal with one important criteria - does it really stimulate the economy and help create jobs - if the answer is no, it does not belong in a so-called stimulus package. Furthermore, the stimulus must include significant direct relief to American workers in the form of payroll tax cuts and programs to help homeowners keep their homes. Finally, we need an end game to this stimulus so that when our economy recovers, these spending programs do not remain permanent and saddle our children with a skyrocketing national debt.

I appreciate the discussions President Obama is having with my Republican colleagues, but the time for talking has come to an end and we must now begin some serious negotiation. But as of yet, Republicans have not been given the opportunity to be involved. The House of Representatives passed a stimulus bill without a single Republican supporting it. In the Senate, the Democrat leadership is trying to jam the existing proposal through regardless of reservations from a number of members. With so much at stake, the last thing we need is partisanship driving our attempts to turn the economy around.

I have long been a fighter against wasteful spending in Washington and long an advocate for a balanced budget -- that will never change. I realize we face extraordinary challenges with our economy today, but that is not an excuse for more irresponsibly from Washington. I hope you will join me in saying no to this stimulus package as it currently exists by signing this petition.


Sincerely,

John McCain
Chair, Country First PAC

Signed.
Jay Leno said this bill equates to over $3300 to every man, woman, and child in the US. So why don't they just send us all checks?
Today, Nancy Pelosi claimed that 500 million Americans would lose their jobs each month if this bill doesn't get passed? ( This would indicate 100% unemployment in how many months?)

I signed the petition. It is TOO BAD the fool politician didn't make this stand on the first bailout package. We would likely not be in this situation now as there would have been a clear difference for the less observant to see.

:laugh: LOL The sad part is, it's back to the same old dirty tricks, making the bill available only hours before it needs to be signed. Who can read 1,100 pages in SIX hours? They always do that! Same thing happened with the Patriot Act. Same thing happened with the Federal Income Tax.

The killer is, who exactly will get these so called created jobs? American citizens? Ya, right.

The petition was at the linked site 1.5 months ago. It probably got presented/forwarded to "our" congressmen just prior to the vote on the stimulus bill.

500 Million? at the last census there was less then 300 million people in the U.S...

still you can't believe anything out of Pelosi's mouth, the same person whom said Barack Hussein Obama is eligible to be President (NOT), and that a dead person was a valid elector...

TIME FOR A NEW DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!

Start or attend a TEA PARTY NEAR YOU OR MAKE THE APRIL 15TH ONE IN D.C.

New American Tea Party

Tax Day Tea Party

If there's 500 million people in the US and 300 million are citizens and legal immigrants. That must mean we have 200 million illegal and criminal aliens in this country. Or else Pelosi is using the new fuzzy math, then again it's possible she doesn't know what she's talking about. Sooo, who cares, were all out of work now anyway.

JOhn Mccain is such a hypocrit. These guys are acting like they didn't take us from surplus to huge deficit. They spent money like there was no tommorrow and now the democrats are doing the same thing. Usuall politics for you.

Exactly what surplus would that be? the surplus that slick-Wille claimed he left W. Bush?

The Slick-Willie surplus is a myth, urban legend...

Slick-Willie saved roughly 500 billion dollars which he claimed as a surplus; by cannibalizing the U.S. Military and Defense Budget and setting us up for 911...

This is the same Slick-Wille that signed a law forcing Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae to keep no-less then 50% of their balance sheet in sub-prime mortgages...
The same bill that the Usurper Obama was the attorney of record for ACORN whom wrote it...

The Usurper Gun Ban Obama & Company have spent more money in their first 30 days in office then the total spent by all other governments combined in the history of the country, inflation adjusted!

The Usurper Obama recently stated, I have asked my cabinet to cut 100 million from the budget that just passed; (it should be noted that out of 535 members of congress not one Republican voted for it), additionally, that token 100 million just about covers the interest alone for the money the Usurper Obama has spent in his first 30 days in office, accrued in a two hour period of time...

Time for a New Declaration of Independence, and a New American Tea Party, this time we need to come armed, like we did at Lexington when the British tried to take our assault weapons away and tax us to death the last time...

the republicans solution to the economy.

Have a Tea Party!

Is there something wrong with peaceful assembly to protest something we see as an injustice? What would you propose as an alternative? That we all just sit down and shut up, because the Obamanation is such a great guy?:sarcastic:
