How did it become law skippy? Since the senate didnt need the house.
this should be good.
What part was false?
It's false in that you are claiming that the Senate caved and passed the House bill. It's just a temporary bill, until Sept. 16, only because the House skipped town.
Is this how it's going to be straight through to the election? I wish to vote to move the election up then, please.
Tuesday works for me.

Oh gawd, I see we're nitpicking every tidbit in everyone's archives. How ignorant.

It's not even an appropriate "subject" to toss into this thread. A strawman argument. That said, "pork" spending reached a pinnacle in 2005, the highest in history, under you-know-who and which party in control.
Was it an interesting report Willow?
"Pork" is also known as "earmark spending," which means stickys placed on pages in existing bills often having NOTHING to do with the "pork funding" requested, but gets approved because it's part of the bigger package.
Educate yourself. Beck College doesn't cut it.
