More wasteful government spending coming our way. Taxed Enough Allready (TEA)

Here are some recent statements by politicians that I feel are noteworthy.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House will reconvene for a vote on the $26 billion state aid bill aimed at saving the jobs of teachers and other public employees, while giving the states a helping hand with Medicaid. Is this what you want?
“This has been the my way or the highway administration from the stimulus bill forward,” “Democrats on Capitol Hill and in this administration have slammed the door on republican ideas, have slammed the door on bipartisan proposals.” said Republican Indiana Rep. Mike Pence
"This bill is a brazen attempt to funnel more money to public employee unions before an election at a moment of record deficits and debt.” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
"This election is about jobs. The American Dream is threatened, but Washington continues its reckless spending, massive debt, and tax increases," said Linda McMahon
"Teachers, nurses and cops should not be used as pawns in a cynical political game" resulting from "the Democratic majority's failure to govern responsibly," said David Dreier.
President Obama signed a bill that he says will save hundreds of thousands of teacher and other public workers from unemployment. The $26 billion bill would protect 300,000 teachers, police and others from election-year layoffs almost all are union members. The bill is a blatant giveaway to teachers unions and an another obvious example of wasteful Washington spending.
