I will always love this man.
Oh, it is change all right, the remaking of America into the new United Socialist States of America.
|â€œIf it seems like Iâ€™m angry, itâ€™s because I am,â€ McCain said, taking the White House to task for treating the bill as leftover business â€” and not subject to the full measure of earmark reform promised by candidate Obama.
â€œLast yearâ€™s business?â€ McCain asked, incredulous. â€œThe president will sign this appropriations bill into law. It is the presidentâ€™s business. It is the president of the United Statesâ€™ business. It is the president of the United Statesâ€™ business to do what he said â€” stated â€” when we were in debate seeking the support of the American people â€” where he said he would work to eliminate earmarks.â€
â€œWe need earmark reform and when Iâ€™m president, I will go line by line to make sure weâ€™re not spending money unwisely,â€ McCain said, reading back Obamaâ€™s words at a debate last fall. â€œThatâ€™s the quote, the promise of the president of the United States made to the American people in a debate with me in Oxford, Miss. So what is brought to the floor today â€” 9,000 earmarks.â€¦So much for change.â€
