Guess all the talk about Reid putting the fork into McConnell with is post deal talk is not correct. McConnell will ride it through the election.

Glad we have people who have to read these things for us.

Here’s the final bill:

http://www.c-span.org/uploadedFiles/Content/Documents/AMENDMENT10-16-13C.PDF

Here’s the offending passage:

“SEC. 123. Section 3(a)(6) of Public Law 100–676 is
2 amended by striking both occurrences of ‘‘$775,000,000’’
3 and inserting in lieu thereof, ‘‘$2,918,000,000’’. “

Looks entirely innocent, until you know what Public Law 100-676 is.

And of course, the is not one spine in the Republican caucus who would stop out all the superfluous crappola. They demanded a “clean” bill right? Cut out this pork and ram it up Bitch McConnell's derriere.

McCain said “we didn’t even know about this until a few hours ago”. Well, old fool, tell them to take it out.

The rest of the nation should be pissed that McConnell is useing their money to buy him some votes.

Until they are physically thrown out they’ll keep doing this kind of crap. Giving money we don’t have to a millionaire widow. And the republicans are all in. Will there ever be a third party? There better be. Because the republicans are dead.

Not the least surprising. Senator Tudor the Turtle is buying up votes in an election year because he knows a lot of people want him gone. Bringing home the bacon to save his bacon, and all that.

They don't see it that way. Since taxes are unlimited free money dropping a couple hundred million on a boondoggle to get back a couple thousand in campaign contributions, which is actually regulated, makes perfect sense.

Matthew 26:14 Then went one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, to the chief priests,

15 And said to them: What will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you? But they appointed him thirty pieces of silver.

16 And from thenceforth he sought opportunity to betray him.

Acts 1:16 Men, brethren, the scripture must needs be fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of them that apprehended Jesus:

17 Who was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.

18 And he indeed hath possessed a field of the reward of iniquity, and being hanged, burst asunder in the midst: and all his bowels gushed out.

19 And it became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: so that the same field was called in their tongue, Haceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

20 For it is written in the book of Psalms: Let their habitation become desolate, and let there be none to dwell therein. And his bishopric let another take.
