    Why doesn't the AP disclose the three Republicans who voted against this measure? The people need to know who they are. The two sides to these issues, between big government and small government, will never change. But, the voice of the people have spoken for smaller government. Let the measure pass.

    It has been proven over the last 10 years, including Obama's 2 years of occupation, that spending money is not working or helping the economy. In fact spending has made the economy worse, we are also out of money to spend. Does any of that make sense if you are on a budget? The Democrats seem to think we have an endless supply of pork.

    The democrats are playing hardball to please their high profile bribery funders. Cuts should hurt and make people cry, but its either a few tears or global bankruptcy. Blackberry's are not magic wands that can fix anything, it's going to take human brains and willpower.

    Based on your comment it is obvious that all Republicans wear black and want to destroy the earth while all Democrats wear white, are saints, and want to save us from those evil Republicans.

    Hasn't Ms. Pelosi had her 15 minutes of fame yet?

    Keep this up and you will keep your jobs. Don't settle into the DNC trap of "we can spend our way out of debt." Keep cutting the fat and like magic our debts will start to vanish.

    "... shield greenhouse-gas polluters and privately owned colleges from federal regulators; block a plan to clean up the Chesapeake Bay; and bar the government from shutting down mountaintop mines it believes will cause too much water pollution. In almost every case, the measure sides with business groups...." Now we know for sure who the Republicans serve, and it is not the American people.
