Cutting Welfare to Save Tax Cuts for the Rich

They are doing it on the Floor of the House and Senate as I write...turn on C-SPAN.

UPDATE: Senator Feingold just bitchslapped the wingnuts into another vote on PAY-GO. Or, The pay as you go rule. This would hurt tax cuts for the rich...

UPDATE: Wingnut Senator Sununu just said "so called big oil..."matter of factly

UPDATE: Unrest in the House, BLUE-DOGS are barking and getting applause and wingnuts are complaining about it.

UPDATE: Wingnut Rep. Jack Kingston just casually "misspoke" and called BLUE-DOGS' "lap-dogs" and got boo'd...

UPDATE: Wingnut Rep. Putnam just admitted he has not memorized The Book of Matthew...(the part of the Bible w/ that whole camel through the eye of a needle thing)

UPDATE: That Bitch Rep. Marsha Blackburn is trying to speak. Her voice is cracking...elmo is getting into her head...

UPDATE: Senate hero's are dragging wingnuts into voting

UPDATE: Wingnut Rep. Jim Nussle just reminded us that Republicans have not raised taxes...on the rich...

UPDATE: Hero Rep. Rangel proclaims this debate historic...

UPDATE: Senator Kerry still wears pink ties!

UPDATE: Hero Rep. Richard Neal just earned his bitchslapper merit badge!

UPDATE: The Senate is still considering 60$ billion in federal tax cuts...for the rich. The hero's are still dragging them down. This could take all night.

UPDATE: Hero Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee slaps a wingnut!

UPDATE: Hero Chet Edwards represents Texas...slaps a wingnut!

Elmo is fading fast...will watch...but can't type any longer... VOTE NO ON THIS BUDGET!

Take that you greedy bastards!

The overall budget passed by 2 votes after Hastert made major concessions to get dissenting Republicans to vote yes. All Dems voted NO. House-Senate compromise to be hashed out next month.

Woo-hoo! Wake up, buttercup. We won, they lost; Dems voted unanimously, with 20 or so Pubs crossing the aisle.

Wow. That's fantastic.(!)

Remember when W. won a year ago and said that he earned some political currency and said, "I'm going to spend it."

He's in trouble.
