Today on the Hill

The House meets at 9 a.m. to vote on the economic stimulus bill. Meanwhile, the Senate is scheduled to vote on the bill this evening around 7 p.m. ET. If both chambers pass the legislation, it's expected to be signed by President Obama on Monday.

I am hoping that both Senate and House vote favorably, thus showing their willingness to help the American people. It's sad to see that the Republican support has been so limited and at times non-existent. We all know that "change" cannot happen overnight, but when it comes to the Republican mentality, all that we are asking is that they "change back" to the views that the Republican leaders held when our country was young. Could they be inspired in Lincoln and think as Lincoln would have thought if he was alive today?

There has been many comments about the Majority of The House memebers, not reading the economic stimulus bill, before the vote was taken on Friday. Additional time (two weeks)should have been aloted to review this Bill. I am all for change and I believe most Americans are also. A longer debate and discussion process should have happened, before it went to the floor for a final vote. This is a lot of American peoples tax dollars (789 Billion Dollars) going into "uncharted waters". Two more weeks to read the bill by all members of the House, would not of made that much of a difference in the bill going forward for signing. It may have reduced the size of the bill considerably.

Thank You,
