House Republicans suggest names for Democrats’ untitled, $26-Billion ‘second stimulus’ bill

(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
