    Fox News:

    FOXNews.com - Senate OKs $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill

    CNN:

    Senate approves government funding bill - CNN.com

    But CNN says $447 billion!

    So who's right?

    Senate passes $1.1 trillion spending bill - Capitol Hill- msnbc.com

    Well actually:

    The truth, as always, is in the numbers.

    the truth, not dogbert's cherry pick quote from CNN:

    and as pointed out by dogbert....msnbc also says 1.1 trillion...as does cbs....

    Senate OKs $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill - CBS News

    here is a google....http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...pending+Bill&btnG=Google+Search&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

    which i'm sure came from the same source as fox....the AP....

    might want to do your homework next time dogbert

    dogbert...you really need to do your homework....

    On a 57-35 vote, senators approved legislation that would combine $447 billion in funds for a variety of federal agencies and about $650 billion in payments for benefit programs like Medicare and Medicaid. The agency money is for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2010. It doesn't include defense spending.

    You could still fall back on your real point. You don't like Fox News. After being proven wrong twice in your own thread, you might just want to call it a night.

    Except in this case, CNN is wrong too. This thread was not made to attack Fox News. Don't jump to such conclusions like that.

    i think youve invented that point? i understood the defense budget was as yet TBD. i think the $626B is entitlements.

    nice try...you tried to claim cnn was right and fox is wrong....you even tried to claim it includes the defense spending....telling me i'm missing the point...you're wrong buddy boy....it doesn't....

    it is in fact a 1.1 TRILLION dollar spending bill....that is truth....
