The U. S. House was on recess when Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ordered members to scurry back to Washington on August 10 2010 to do what they do best, spend taxpayer’s money by approving another bailout, this time for states that have been derelict in controlling their own spending on government worker pay, benefits and pensions.
The call-back session was to vote on a $26.1 billion bill to bail out state governments (The Senate passed the legislation on August 5th.). The bill was approved by the House on a largely party line vote.
According to Fox News, some Democrats and advocacy groups are “outraged” because “the bill also requires that $12 billion be stripped from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps, to help fund the new bill.” Is taking $12 billion from the Food Stamps program in order to pass it to union jobs the new Obama plan to redistribute wealth?
Reconvening of Congress, their action quite speedy
To bail out the unions, they all are so greedy.
Harry, Nancy and Barack
Act together as a pack:
Take it from food stamps; who cares ‘bout the needy?
