$800B+ Spending Bill-The largest in our nation’s history- And they didn’t even read it?

This was the largest single spending bill in the history of our nation.  Pushed through so fast, with no oversight, and minimal debate.   What would Franklin, Adams, or Jefferson have said?  It was the original intent of the Founding Fathers to limit the powers of the federal government, not to expand them.

We heard from President Obama and the congressional ‘leaders’ that failure to act would mean a worsening economy, more jobs lost, and the potential to cause a recession, and that action NOW was needed.  In the frenzy of ramming this bill through the process, not one of the members of Congress actually had time to read the bill.  This is wrong.  You know it and I know it.

Change is what we need, on this I can agree with Obama.
