“The American people have a right to know what’s in this bill,” Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind) told HUMAN EVENTS after the press conference. “Every member of Congress -- Republicans and Democrats -- voted to post this bill on the internet for 48 hours, 48 hours ago. We’ll see if the Democrats keep their word.”Maybe gun control for liberals is a good idea. If they did carry guns, they'd just be constantly shooting themselves in the foot.
Actually -- as of 5:15 pm, the Democrats had broken their word. The stimulus bill -- which we still haven’t seen -- will be released late tonight and will be brought up on the House floor at 9 am tomorrow.
The following statement was released by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer at 4:57 p.m.:
"The House is scheduled to meet at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow and is expected to proceed directly to consideration of the American Recovery and Reinvestment conference report. The conference report text will be filed this evening, giving members enough time to review the conference report before voting on it tomorrow afternoon."
Good remark from House Republican Whip Eric Cantor: “Those in favor of speed over commonsense may just be afraid of letting the People know what they are ramming through.”
You can review the back and forth versions of the bill at Read The Stimulus, but the Dems aren't giving you 48 hours to finish.
