Republican whining

Fox news has put on several Republican to complain that Obama and the democrats have not consulted with them over the content of bills, in particular the super spending stimulus bill.
These complaints are childish. "They won't let me play with them". The Republicans ought to be pointing out how little of the $819 billion dollars is "stimulus" and how much is pork. They ought to be exposing the port by name, rank and serial number. They ought to be pointing out how little of the money will be spent immediately. And how $819 billion is $2730 for every man woman and child in the US. There are plenty of real arguments against the super spender bill. Don't waste your air time with procedural complaints. We voters don't care about the procedure, we care about results. Like how much is this going to cost me. And what's in it for me?
