The New Robber Barons

Otherwise known as the U.S. Senate. The Democrats have proposed a $1.1 trillion spending bill for FY 2011 that includes gobs of pork, and, most ominously of all, allocations to fund Obama Care (a key provision of which has just been declared unconstitutional by a federal judge). Any Republican who supports this pig - and, yes, I'm looking at you, Bond and Collins - ought to get primaried.

"Spurgeon, hand me my clue-by-four."

"The one with the protruding nails, sir?"

"Yes. Half measures would seem to be pointless at this stage."

"Very good, sir."

Half measures avail us NOTHING...nothing but more expensive government, of course.

Just the logical extension of the past two years. Expanding power, authority and spending so they can negotiate from a higher base. That has been the mission statement of this Congress.
