    Here's a little poetic justice for we conservatives. Republican Susan Collins, along with Olympia Snow & Arlan Spector had a real opportunity to pressure democrats regarding the 787 BILLION dollar economic stimulus bill to rid it of pork & earmarks. They didn't--they chose to sign off on it.

    It appears that republican Susan Collins insisted that 1.9 BILLION for CDC research be removed from the bill-or she wouldn't sign it. She stated at the time she did not believe this to be economic stimulus.

    Democrats removed it--& of course she signed it. NOW--that the swine flu is in the news--the left is outraged at her for insisting that the 1.9 billion for the CDC was removed.

    I wonder if she is real happy about signing off on the 787 BILLION dollar stimulus bill now??--he.he.he.

    It didn't belong as part of the stimulus bill. If additional funding is necessary, they can pass a bill tomorrow for the funding.

    What I find amusing is that people didn't see this coming.

    They can still pass a bill and if it gets bad, they probably will do that. I'm not mad at the three who worked to get the stimulus out. They were there when all the other Rs were sitting around obstructing.

    If we were to have a pandemic, we would need every penny to keep the encomy from collapsing. No one working means no frigging economy.

    Lots of stuff didn't belong in a stimulus package; including this.
