    Can this guy get any slimier?

    It's an odd sequence. The House of Representatives passed its minimum-wage bill on Jan. 10, 2007, called H.R.2. The bill had nothing to do with illegal aliens or amnsety. It then went to the Senate. It was scheduled for a vote on Feb. 1. Apparently, just before the vote, Teddy Kennedy slipped the entire text of his last-year's illegal alien amnesty bill into it. It was then passed 94-3 by a voice vote in the Senate, still titled the "Minimum Wage" bill.

    I guess it now goes to a committee where they "iron out the differences" between what the House passed, and what the Senate just passed.

    Anyone know how likely it is, that the committe will weed out Kennedy's little change? Or will they simply rubber-stamp it? Or...??

    See http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:HR00002: and click on "Amendments". Scroll down to S.A. 187 and click on it. BYO barf bag.

    To answer your question: yes. He gets slimier every year.

    This will be a good opporortunity for a veto, with Bush exposing Teddy's trickery. If that happens Kennedy would have made a huge blunder.

    Alrighty now can somebody please help a brother out! Is this little trick that drunken mick pulled a pork deal? The reason I ask this, is because I remember hearing not long ago that the new democratic senate was going to ensure this practice stops. So if they aren't reducing this type of thing then I guess it is about seniority?

    Please, Please, Please gimmie a link where they said they were not going to do this. I got a scathing letter to my senators all ready and that would be the icing on the cake.

    I think JFK might have been the best Kennedy out of the lot. He may have been getting some strange on the side but at least he seemed like a good leader!

    I'm willing. But JFK is dead so what is the relevance really? I mean that slug Teddy is still drinking after attending AA meetings and lying and scamming our nation so that too me is relevant.

    I read like a snail travels.....Actually I don't want to find the time to read such things. IMO those are great tools but if parties aren't going to change then why write about history repeating itself?
    Oh I see your point---kennedy bad name all around. Just most of them were offed gbefore anymore damage could be done. Somehow ole theo is making up for his brothers short fallings.:rolleyes:
