Wherever will this horse manure end?
The Senate passed another huge $1.1 trillion 'omnibus' spending bill this Sunday afternoon, 57-35.
The Republicans attempted to filibuster this, but the Senate voted 60-34 to end debate and clear the way for the vote. Even a few Democrats like Evan Bayh voted against this nonsense, while GOP Senator Richard Shelby was the only Republican to vote to pass the bill.
Keep in mind that this does not include any military or defense spending.The Dems excluded that and are saving it for later, to tack on to another spending bill covering some other items they want....
I can hear the whining now..."How can you vote against funding the troops? 'Course, that means you have to vote for increases in all these other programs!"
Can you imagine if you ran your business or your household like this?
The big difference between Bernie Madoff and our Federal Government is the ability to tax and to print money. If Madoff had been able to do that, he'd be a free man today..and probably Secretary of the Treasury.
