House Votes on ‘XXXX’ State Government Union Bailout Today

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) summoned the House of Representatives back to Washington into a special, pro forma session today for Democrats to pass another $26 billion bailout bill.

In such a hurry to put more funding into the hands of their union buddies this Congressional election season, Democrats forgot to name the bill they passed through the Senate.

Reported on the Editors Pick on techie news outlet CNET.com:

It was supposed to be some routine election-year largesse from Democrats: a $26 billion spending measure to aid two of the party’s core constituencies, labor unions, and government workers.

But a watchdog Web site on Sunday evening spotted an unusual feature of the legislation, which the Senate approved by a 61-to-39 vote last week.

It doesn’t actually have a name. Congress’ official Web site calls it the “______Act of____” (PDF). Elsewhere, it’s referred to as the “XXXXXX Act of XXXX.”

Whatever the name, or no name, associated with the legislation, it may be too late to christen the bill properly. The Senate has left town until mid-September, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called the House of Representatives back into session to vote on the same unidentified legislation.

“Speaker Pelosi is calling the House back to vote on another bailout and another job-killing tax increase — but she didn’t exactly dot the ‘i’s’ and cross the ‘t’s’,” Mike Steel, spokesman for Republican Leader John Boehner told HUMAN EVENTS.  “In fact, the bill was thrown together so fast it doesn’t even have a proper name.”

“For now, it is known by a moniker associated with booze or poison in Looney Tunes cartoons — the ‘XXXX’ Act,” Steel added.

This particular bailout with no name is an additional $10 billion for state government union employees with an additional delayed $16 billion to bailout Medicare for another six months.

Over $400 billion of the original $787 billion in “stimulus” state bailout funds have not yet been spent — likely held back for the purpose of presidential election season union community organizing.

Why would the administration waste all that taxpayer money on Congressional elections?

By Bob L.

Here we go again, another bail out, who is this bailout for, basically the Teachers Union, it is not for the unemployed looking for a job, it is for people who all ready have a Forty hour or more job, better known as the union, when is this Government going to see that more taxes mean less jobs, and they keep calling for better Education, if this is the Education that is taught in Schools and Colleges, then we will keep falling farther behind other Countries.

It is time for the States to stop KISSING Federal ASS, and start helping the American people, and companies put a stop to the Federal DICTATORS, and get taxes down to where companies can get back to hiring, AND make THEM follow the law of the land that they SWORE to uphold.

I would still like to know why Public jobs are more important then private jobs when private jobs pays TAXES so Public can have jobs.

This Government should be investing in Private jobs before they bail out public jobs, they still don’t under stand that a public job does not produce a product, so what are they trying to sell, maybe what they are trying to sell is that they have a job when every one who makes a product does not.

The most important jobs are the first ones to be cut, and that is PUBLIC SAFETY, then the next Continue reading
