Senate Overrides Veto on Water Resources Bill, Joins House
WASHINGTON — President Bush suffered the first veto override of his seven-year-old presidency Thursday as the Senate enacted a $23 billion water resources bill despite his protest that it was too expensive. It was the first time in a decade that Congress has passed a bill over a presidential veto.
Too little, too late boss. Why didn't you Veto overspending like this when the Republicans were in office? You set a precedent of spending too much, and now you want to cut back because it's a Democrat-led pork bill? You can't have it both ways.
Of course, the American people are left footing this pathetic, wasteful bill. A bill that contains no money for port security, for police, for fire departments, for border protection, for F-22s to replace the entire freak'n fleet of F-15 fighters that were just grounded worldwide, for more MRAPS to keep us safe out here, for cleaning up toxic waste dumps or investing in alternative fuels, for offsetting the cost of drilling for new sources of Oil in Alaska or the Gulf (where China and Cuba are drilling), for helping to rebuild Ground Zero that is still a big hole in the ground after 6 years of ineptitude, for investing in lunar mining to catch up to the Chinese who have vowed to make the moon their next Eutopia for Chairman Mao.....
You could have spent that money, or the trillions of dollars wasted since 2000, on improving our nation instead of rebuilding the waterfront located 1000 feet from the rental property owned by the 'Speaker of the House' and her husband.
Thank you Congressional Democrats and Republicans for reminding us all just who you're working for out there in Washington D.C. Yourselves.
Today we face a plummeting dollar, skyrocketing debt, war expenditures, Homeland Security infrastructure upgrades around the world, yet you still tax us with an archaic and repressive system while spending our hard-earned money faster then virgin in a Vegas brothel.
I pray that the elections of 2008 will be a clean sweep, and that everyone guilty of hurting our nation through frivolous overspending finds themselves in the unemployment line.
Everyone guilty of raping and pillaging the Treasury coffers.
Democrat and Republicans alike. Everyone.
It's time for.....
Viva La Revolucion!
