The Great Democrat Power Building Act of 2009, otherwise known as the stimulus bill, passed the House tonight by a margin of 242-189.
Number of House Republicans that sided with the Dems in order to cover their asses for their next campaign?
None. Zip. Zilch.
Major props to House Minority Leader John Boehner and Minority Whip Eric Cantor for keeping every single vote in line….especially if you consider this post from Marc Ambinder. Let’s see if McConnell can work some magic in the Senate.
It seems everyday the GOP has been able to highlight something else ridiculous in the bill and embarrassed the Majority into removing it. The longer we can delay the inevitable, the better off the American people are.
This is gonna be fun to watch.
