New "Compromise" Reached

The "Bi-partisan" stimulus package (which republican conferees were frozen out of) which is estimated to produce 3.5 million jobs has reached a "tentative deal."

$789.5 Billion.

That amounts to $225,571.43 of government spending for each job that "should be produced."

Let's look at that $789,500,000,000 to "create 3,5000,000 jobs."

From Congress Daily, via Michelle Malkin;
It appears that Pelosi and Reid staff met all through the night in secret with Democratic conferees’ staff to cobble together the “stimulus” conference report. Republican conferees were frozen out.
The objective appears to be to produce a final conference report on the trillion-dollar spending bill by this afternoon so that floor action can take place in both chambers by Thursday.
They intend to ram this trillion-dollar spending bill through with as little debate and scrutiny as possible.
The House voted unanimously yesterday in support of a Republican measure stating that the American should have 48 hrs to review the bill prior to passage. Will Democrats follow through? Or will they do the opposite of what they voted to do yesterday?

Red State has more.
