Arlen Specter and Susan Collins say that they will support the so-called "stimulus" bill

What a mess. I hope that voters let Specter and Collins know how they feel about this. Specter's website can be reached here. A news article from Fox News is here:

Senators have reached a tentative deal on a version of President Obama's economic stimulus plan, including about $811 billion in spending and tax cuts, that will win enough Republican votes to move forward.

Sens. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Susan Collins of Maine appeared to be the critical Republicans to sign onto the bill, giving Democrats the 60 votes needed to advance to a final vote. Democrats also voiced confidence that Republican Sen. Olympia Snow of Maine also would vote for the plan.

It isn't certain when a vote would come, but sources indicate Sunday is a likely bet. . . .

These Republican Senators Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Arlen Specter must have lost their minds! Are they nuts or what? Spending over $800,000,000,000 that we do not have and there is no way to pay for it! Someone just sits by a printing press and just prints money. They are NOT Republicans. Go ahead and switch parties. The last thing we need are more US Senators spending money like drunken sailors. My apologies to all drunken sailors for the insult to you.
