Stimulus Package passes the Senate thanks to three Republican traitors

The spending bill masquerading as a Stimulus Package passed in the United States Senate. The vote was in favor: 61 (58 Democrats, 3 Republicans), against: 37 Republicans.

Due to three Senators not voting with their party and ignoring their constituents, this legislation will be on President Obamas desk in a few days. The three Republicans are:

Senator Susan Collins of Maine
Senator Olympia Snow of Maine
Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania

In the finest tradition of Americas first traitor Benedict Arnold, these Senators did General Arnold proud. It should be remembered while this legislation passed in the House of Representatives, not one Republican voted in favor of it.
