Breaking: Senate Passes Revised Economic Stimulus Plan: 60-38

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) just got back  from Ohio, where he was attending his mother’s memorial services, and has casted an “Aye” vote for the economic stimulus package.  That was the 60th Aye vote needed, since Ted Kennedy (D-MA) was not voting.  The 3 Republicans who sided with the Democrats before, Arlen Specter (R-PA), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), and Susan Collins (R-ME) voted with the Democrats.

“Mr. Brown.  Mr. Brown, Aye.”  Those were the words that just came from the Dick Durbin (D-IL) who was presiding over the Senate.  The Senate has just agreed to the bill as it was revised by the conference committee.

This is such a shame, and I’m still angry that they actually made Senator Brown come back to vote.  They couldn’t get Ted Kennedy to come back?  Sure he’s sick, but he wasn’t at MEMORIAL SERVICES for his MOTHER!

Additionally, this bill is a TERRIBLE BILL!  I’m not happy right now.

    Given that fact that Ted Kennedy is sick, I wouldn’t be surprised that if he was the 60th vote, the Republicans would try to discount his vote because he was not mentally competent (brain tumor).

    This may be a terrible bill but at least the Democrats are trying. What do the Republicans do? They demand their own revisions be included which does happen and then vote against it. Why should the Democrats even try to reach across the table when all they get is stabbed in the back?

    The Republicans have never challenged Kennedy’s competency before. Besides, you can’t just discount the vote of a Senator. They’d have to expell him.

    Great post! I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work.

    I recently started a new blog that will be highlighting the dangerous advances of the secular progressive movement (pro-gay “rights”, pro-abortion, anti-religious freedoms, etc).

    We’re looking to build a solid group of conservatives who’ll frequent our site regularly and contribute to some good discussions. The site gets updated daily with breaking news, so you’ll want to check back often, or you can just sign up for our News Feed.

    If you’ll add us to your blogroll we’ll gladly add you to ours. Our blog is called Religion and Morality.

    Thanks!
