These 6 GOP Senators Said ‘No’ to the Stimulus

Six Republican Senators could not bring themselves to vote for the pork contained in the recent stimulus bill.

According to Fox News:

After months of stalled negotiations, Congress finally passed a new $900 billion coronavirus relief package late Monday night with overwhelming support in the Senate, but six Republicans stood firmly against it.

Sens. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Mike Lee, R-Utah, Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Rick Scott, R-Fla., all stood firmly against the bill, which had been bundled with a $1.4 trillion spending bill to avoid a government shutdown. Their criticisms largely focused on the size of the legislation, both in terms of the dollar amount and the bill’s page count.

Cruz and Lee also criticized the process of the legislation, with lawmakers having just hours to read several thousand pages. After Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the concept of having to vote on a large bill without having time to examine it, Cruz agreed with the left-wing Democrat.

“It’s ABSURD to have a $2.5 trillion spending bill negotiated in secret and then—hours later—demand an up-or-down vote on a bill nobody has had time to read,” Cruz tweeted.

Washington continues to operate unchecked, but these 6 senators were not going to stand for it.

Well said Wayne…at least they had the courage to stand up for our free enterprise system. Oops, I forgot, they probably don’t know what Free Enterprise means.

Hard to believe that years ago an most notable Democrat said, “And now my fellow American’s, ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country”.

For those who don’t know how that turned, someone had him shot…to shut him up for good.

Some speculate, too, that it was because of JFK’s Executive Order 11110 which would take power away from the Federal Reserve and the US government would create its own money backed by silver and gold. By the way, the Federal Reserve Bank is a private corporation of bankers and not an arm of the government. As always, follow the money. Greedy people will stop at nothing and even commit murder to enrich themselves.

I’ve lived many years, and saw the Mafia take over Chicago, Detroit, and the UNIONS. Now the unions “BUY” the Dems and Rinos every election. They just use a nicer sounding word, “DONATE”. Then we have a NAZI, Mr. George Soros that spent tens of millions this election to get liberals elected. I don’t read the “Lame Stream Media”, but will bet they don’t cover that?

Of course he DID NOT “win”… There was so much rampant voter fraud, and VIDEOS to prove it, a “blind person” could “see” it. I doubt that many LEGAL American citizens would “welcome” the END of our Constitutional republic, and embrace a “third-world”, banana republic”, COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP CESSPOOL, HIGHER TAXES, MORE REGULATION. LOST FREEDOMS, and COMMUNIST CHINA (the “masters”)”calling the shots”, as dementia-joe, “cameltoe” harris, the ineligible “anchor baby”, as well as and the biden family crime syndicate have been bought, sold, and owned by communist china.

I saw a video of Soros’ palace in China. Tall stone walls around it, and guards armed with machine guns. Does anyone know who Chelsea Clinton married? And where the wedding was? Who paid for the wedding? Just think Y’all should all know those answers?

  1. Soros nephew. 2. In Soros New Your home. 3. The Clinton Foundation. Anyone still think Soros doesn’t “OWN” the Clinton’s???

Absolutely no bill should be passed unless it is fully read, that’s another reason as well as a WHOLE LOT of others, we just need a civil war to reorganize the country, 1 oz of cheating on voting should be high federal offense, we should be way above a lot of things going on. TERM LIMITS FOR ONE. We will reach the boiling point wait and see.

Everyone who voted for this bill should be voted out. This insanity needs to stop – congress just voted to make Americans all up and down the ladder poorer and poorer on both a global and domestic scale – what devious undertaking is going on behind the scenes – perhaps Cruz, Paul and others can tell us – We want answers!!!

Just keep voting Democrat and soon they will just do whatever they want and to heck with us. We are second class, they are the Elite and deserve to impose and taxes they want, and spend our money any way they want to. That is why it is legal for them to add all these different pork spending bills to the main one. Either reject the one badly needed or pass it as well as all the pork stealing ones. Typical Democrat stealing plan. Still think they did not steal the election?

Nancy’s motto operandis “ passing a bill without reading it and finding out what it contain after the bill passed . Disgraceful on her part . What this people had done against the American people is disgraceful. I agree with AOC Nancy and all other whom been refer fir more than three decades should be asked to leave . They are doing a disservice to our President the people and our country .

90% of Congress would be fired before their probation period, if we had one, was over in a Corporate setting! They don’t have a clue how to run a business AND these idiots have America’s “checkbook”!
We don’t need good old boys in D.C., we need people who know what the hell they are doing, to take care of America’s finances!
We need a “policies and procedures manual” full of mandatory qualifications and experience to even run for Congress, President or VP! We would cull the dead wood before they ever got elected and entrenched in D.C.
I feel like we are “in the barrel” 24/7!

Carol: I remember when POTUS first went to congress. He told Mitch that he wanted something done a certain way. He was politely?? told, “We don’t do things that way.” If remember correctly, POTUS’ response was something to the effect, do it anyway.

What pretends to be our government is stacked to the top with con artists and grifters who pretend to act in the interest of the people and who have developed and accepted a methodology to completely divert and corrupt our system of government for their own interests. They vote in mass tribally without even knowing what will come of their actions as long as some small piece of their legislation suits some personal special interest. It is well past time for the people to take back their country, peacefully if possible.

dang it crazy times I just saw a demon ice skating past my window ..true ..it was just cruzzing !? . for the 1st and probably last time [ excepting we do hope she will make a public apology for the pain she has caused the american people ] AOC has said something sensible !? … and Ted Cruz agrees with her !? . American people need help ,now , how can it need a 5000 page document to accomplish that ?. Is this a measure of how much swamp needs axing ? 5000:1 . To punish a roman legion that had misbehaved a decimation could be carried out ,1 in every 10 would be executed . Does the Washington establishment need 4999 in every 5000 removed ?. If there are 40 000 lobbyists mostly for big pHARMa this maybe about right . [ 10 million for transgender studies in pakistan !!! ]

No one should have approved this bill. Take all the pork out. Give the money they were allotting to other countries and add those amounts to the American people stimulus since they have so much money to hand out.

This is reminiscent of the affordable healthcare bill that had thousands of pages and even more pork forced on the American taxpayer because Pelosi said “there isn’t time to read it”! Every member that voted for that bill should be fired and immediately removed from office for dereliction of duty! This entire fiasco of forcing Congress or the Senate to vote on bills they have no idea of what’s been written into the bill is insane. We can fire them all saving trillions and just throw a dart at a spinning faro wheel and get more for our wasted dollars!!

Pelosi is certainly proving she doesn’t know her A from a hole in the wall. She’s out to lunch and has taken the afternoon off. Time for this old bag of bones to be gone. She doesn’t seem to realize what a fool she’s made of herself and how she continues to do so, and she doesn’t seem to realize her time has come and gone. Term Limits, anyone?
