(CNSNews.com) – Washington Democrats are in such a rush to pass one more stimulus-type bill that the legislation to be voted on Tuesday doesn’t even have a name, Republicans note.
As CNET reported, a watchdog Web site on Sunday evening noted that the Democrats’ $26-billion spending measure includes a few blank spaces.
Congress’ official Web site calls it the ‘______Act of____,’ and the Library of Congress’ Thomas Web site displays it as the ‘XXXXXX Act of XXXX.’”
“A nameless bill for a hopeless cause is a fitting metaphor for a Democratic Congress that refuses to listen to the American people and abandon its job-killing agenda,” said House Republican Leader John Boehner (Ohio).
Boehner on Monday offered 10 possible names for what he called the “union-boss bailout” bill:
— Save Our ‘Stimulus’ (SOS) Act
— ‘Recovery Summer’ Bailout Act (Cash for Flunkers)
— Delivering Unions a Major Boost (DUMB) Act
— Helping Election Expenditures, Hurting American Workers (HEEHAW) Act
— Democracy is Strengthened by Clearly Leveraging and Optimizing Special-Interests’ Effectiveness (DISCLOSE) Act
— Holding Union Bosses Over Until Card Check Act
— Rescuing Incumbent Democrats Is Costly (RIDIC) Act
— Summertime Cash for Union Bosses Instead of Spending Cuts for Taxpayers Act
— Frivolous Act of Ineffective Largesse (FAIL) Act
— Naming These Things Hasn’t Gotten Us Anywhere, So Why Bother? Act
