    A Republican senator on Thursday denounced the $18 billion in provisions added to a catchall spending bill to keep the government running through next year, saying they're a "Trojan horse to fund the new federal health care law."

    The Senate will decide the fate of the $1.2 trillion budget bill that narrowly passed the House Wednesday night and would keep the government running through September of next year. But Senate Democrats are planning to add more money, including thousands of pet projects sought by lawmakers.

    Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., noted that the Senate version would provide $19 million to the IRS for dictating health insurance under the new law; $6.25 billion to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for new health reform programs, and $210 million to the Health Resources and Services Administration for public health workforce programs

    Fact. The Repubs rejected any aid for those that selflessly answered this nations call on 9-11, holding that aid hostage to tax breaks for the very wealthy. Tax breaks that will have to be paid for by borrowing money. The very antithesis of fiscal sanity and morality.

    What the Dems need to do is pass the budget, then go home. Come back on 2Jan11, and let the Repubs squack and holler. They don't have enough votes in the Senate to do anything about that. And we all know who has held up money for the people thrown out of work by the criminals that the Repubs support.

    Two sides to that coin, the Democrats didn't present an independent Bill for a straight vote for those first responders. They had the votes to pass it and played politics.

    LOL

    It is irresponsible to give away 700 billion over ten. But it is sound policy to give awy 3.2 trillion.



    Someone call the guys in the white coats, another moon bat is on the loose.

    this is exactly why they had to do a omni-bus bus spending bill for this year back in March, which was over of over 400 Billion, and did not submit a budget as they were supposed to for year 2011...sticker shock.

    You cannot keep funding the gov. by just throwing money at the gov. willy nilly every 3 or 6 months because the budget is not formalized and the true overall cost is never examined, which of course is EXACTLY what they wanted.

    They have been playing games by adding tons of money to fed. dept budgets. NOW that they have inflated all of these agencies what comes next? Tax the evil rich to pay for it.

    Raise expectations then beat people up for not meeting them....what a hoot and so dishonest.

    It never ends, IF they had not blown up the budget the supposed 'losses' they are forecasting by allowing taxs to remain the same on the evil rich would not 'cost' a a dime.

    The body in question doesn't have any of those powers. Nor was it created by the ACA.

    It has all those powers. It can write new regulations to do whatever the hell it wants.

    Did any legislation give the TSA the power to penetrate your wife?
