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.
