Senate Dives into Omnibus Earmarktacular Budget

It passed yesterday, much to the consternation of all thoughtful citizens.

It also passed on a voice vote, providing little accountability for those elected by the people. Rather then actually taking the time to file a vote on this, we just had 100 old people shout at each other. It was all very civil.

There is a semi-record of the vote, in that there was a Roll Call vote before the vote came up.
Look for your senators, both of mine from Texas voted no.

"Absolutely, we need earmark reform. And when I'm president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely"
Our Fearless Leader Obama, 1st Presidential Debate:

The sad fact though, is that the largest waste is by far the federal spending itself, not the earmarks attached. They really are little more then ears upon an ugly beast.

Doesn't it look like Obama and the Dems are flying the plane straight into the ground on purpose? I guess they think they have to have total destruction to establish the Marxist/Socialist utopia they've been pining for.

Or more likely than not, the globalists are using them as useful idiots.

I'm partial to the former theory myself. :D
