"Stimulus" Passes Senate 61 - 37

Sure enough, the three Republicans (Collins, Spector, and Snowe) who were expected to vote in favor of the stimulus followed through and allowed the stimulus to pass. Considering the fact that the Republican party has not been all that 'fiscally conservative' in the past oh decade, the message can be heard loud and clear that this bill was clearly something that no conservative could justify approving. At least now we know who DEFINITELY is not conservative.

I like to see the roll call of who voted in favor of what (it's usually more interesting in the house were there are always a number who cross 'party lines') and I think that if more people paid attention to this they would get a better view of what their Congressmen and women really stand for.

I haven't believed for some time that our state representatives actually represented us...

Oh they definitely do, that is why Congressmen and women lobby for their given states or districts ; )
