Boehner Floor Speech - not one member has read this Spending Bill!

Leader Boehner speaks shortly before House Democrats push through an 1,100 page spending bill with less than 24 hours of public review time.

From Drudge Report:

Rep. John Culberson, TX claims the "stimulus" bill must be urgently voted on today -- because Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leaving at 6:00 PM for an 8 day trip to Europe. HURRY, FELLAS, LET'S VOTE, I AM OFF TO ROME! Fri Feb 13 2009 09:18:52 ET

In the rushing, Democrats have now broken their promise to have the public see the $790 billion bill for 48 hours before any vote.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) predicted that none of his Senate colleagues would 'have the chance' to read the entire final version of the 1,071-page bill before it comes up for a final vote.
