The New Federal Way is the Old Chicago Way

Bribery with other people's (our) money.

And since we're already talking hundreds of millions of dollars here, we're already talking serious money even by DC "standards."

I'm thinking that voting these clowns out of office is only the first step in what needs to be done.

Reid defends deals
By Jake Sherman

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) offered a vigorous defense Monday of the deals in the Senate reform bill that benefit individual states, saying "it doesn't speak well" of senators who didn't secure such deals.

"There are 100 senators here and I don't know that there's a senator that doesn't have something in this bill that isn't important to them," Reid said. "If they don't have something in it important to them then it doesn't speak well of them."

He likened the legislation to the defense bill, which is thick with earmarks and other provisions benefitting individual members and even private corporations.

"That's what legislations all about," Reid said of the compromises. "It's the art of compromise. In this great country of ours, Nevada has many different problems than does New Hampshire. Michigan has many different problems than does Georgia."

I'm taken aback by the effrontery.

When Harry's standing in the unemployment line next November we'll be sure to point out how the word "compromise" works. Compromise does not mean selling out your principals for the highest price with taxpayers money, but Harry and his cronies don't seem to know the difference. Even a liberal would understand this.......or should.

Hey, that works with my wife, a little "compromise" via a trip to the jewelry store and she comes around.

D.C., when taxpayer money is involved and this so called "compromise" is nothing but a load of pig shit.
