149 House reps rent a set of balls…

In a stunning move, the Rethugs tried to play games by voting ‘present’ and it backfired on their smarmy asses.

149 House Reps voted NO on the War Funding Bill today. To see how they all voted, click here. With only 141 Reps voting yes….the bill failed. The bill would have provided $166 billion in war funding, the largest single provision since the war started in 2003.

Tsk.tsk..tsk.. 🙂

If your rep voted no…give them a call and thank them.

Hey Brotha..can you spare $50 Billion?

Thats the magic number Bush is now asking for to support the war effort in the middle east.

WTF did he do with the money they gave him a couple of months ago one might ask..According to the CommonDreams writeup:

The 50 billion dollars would be in addition to the 460 billion dollars in the fiscal 2008 defense budget and 147 billion dollars in a pending supplemental bill to fund the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This is SUCH bullshit..pure, unadulterated bullshit. The Dem’s need to cut off any more funding on this war. They need to go to NUTZ R US and rent a set for everyone.

I am out of town for the next 10 days..but I have I will be online but not as much as usual..that pool and jacuzzi are calling me 😛
