What Got Cut in the Compromise - Mark Hemingway - The Corner on National Review Online
How much does all that come too?
Not all of that is pork, but why am I not surprised to see something for the FBI being cut out.
Dubya and Republicans weren't always so keen on funding the FBI with the level it should be on.
Clinton is the one who underfunded the FBI more severly.
I hope they restore those cuys in negoiations with the House. Cutting science, education, law enforcement and many other things that make American lidfe safer, more enjoyable and beautiful
that doesn't count. clinton was a democrat who never did anything wrong and never made a mistake.
Clinton did underfund the FBI, but if you're going to go so low as to say "who screwed up more" then you're desperate in a partisan battle.
I'm willing to say Clinton fucked up, not so sure about how many Republicans are willing to say Bush fucked up. Especially since the FBI was underfunded DURING WAR TIME UNDER BUSH, Clinton had nowhere anything that 9/11/Afghanistan/Iraq was.
um, shouldnt those be funded in NORMAL bills?
this is supposed to be an emergency bill
Doesn't matter, spending on anything is a stimulus to the economy.
