Supine Blue Dogs (Including Marion Berry) Sleep Through Greatest Financial Burglary in History

by ALG News: Yesterday, Americans for Limited Government released the voting records of some 90 Blue Dog and other so-called "moderate" House Democrats on twelve key votes in 2009.

Bottom line: When it comes to profligate spending, the Blue Dogs are anything but watchdogs. And the moderates make Paris Hilton look tight-fisted.
The ALG analysis includes votes on the $789 billion "stimulus", bankruptcy mortgage "cramdowns," ACORN funding, a $108 billion International Monetary Fund expansion, the Waxman-Markey carbon emission caps, the $2.1 trillion "public option" health system, the $154 billion assistance program for bankrupt states, and the $290 billion debt limit expansion.

In short, they were some of the most controversial measures to pass the House this year. And to be certain, they all passed. Instead of being stalwart financial watchdogs, these so-called “moderates” in the House have turned out to be nothing more than supine lapdogs sleeping through the greatest financial burglary in human history. They have proven unable or unwilling to stop a single piece of budget-busting legislation this session. . . . [Full Story]
