Update 4: Passes with 59 GOP votes against, including Dave Schweikert AZ-05, thank you Dave!!; Only $350 Million in actual cuts!?

Update 4: 4/14/10 2:23 pm: Crapulent deal passes 260-167 with 59 No votes from the GOP. Our wonderful new Critter, Dave Schweikert AZ-05 voted No.

Thank you Rep. Schweikert!!

Roll Call of vote here. Thank your Congressman (or un-thank them whatever the case may be!)

Update 2: Okay, your shout-out is retracted Speaker! What the hell is this?~- CBO says it is actually only $35oMillion, yes M, Million in actual cuts?? You are fxcking kidding right?

AP at HotAir has it:

So to sum up: In less than a week, we’ve gone from $61 billion in cuts to $38 billion in cuts to $15 billion in real cuts to $352 million in deficit reduction this year, which is less than one percent of the number agreed to in the budget deal. I can’t help but suspect that tea partiers might feel a tad … antsy about that trend….

I called Dave Schweikert AZ05 asked him to vote no and tell the leadership to Get Serious.

Update 7:15pm EST: WSJ reports ‘House Leaders to drop funding for new executive jets’

what maroons.

They want the G5 baby….play ball…

Opposition is growing on both sides of the aisle to plans by Congress to spend $550 million for eight new Gulfstream and Boeing planes for senior government officials, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The newspaper quotes Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., as saying the planned purchase “is evidence that some of the cynicism about Washington is well placed — that people get out of touch and they spend money like it’s Monopoly money.”

Several other senators who plan to oppose the funding when the issue is taken up by the Senate in September include John McCain, R–Ariz.;  Jack Reed, D-R.I.; Richard Burr, R-N.C.; Kit Bond, R-Mo.; and John Thune, R-S.D., the newspaper reports.

The Journal says the funding was added to the Pentagon’s budget even though the Defense Department had not requested it.
