    Is it really to give their Messiah a gift on Jesus's birthday? That's just so fucking sweet of all those soon to be former Congressmen and Senators.

    Most likely because few people pay attention to teh News during the holidays and many regular news shows are in reruns or off during that time.

    What is even more puzzling is why the U.S. Senate is voting on a bill titled H.R. 3509, huh Frank???????

    Senate bills start with an S and House of representative bills start with H.R. unless of course we're talking 'bout ObamaCare then none of it matters because Dems don't read bills

    Flunked civics didn't you??????

    Senate Calendar

    Take a gander at the Senate calendar.
    Appropriations bills (and some others) originate in the House and retain the H.R. title through the Senate.

    C'mon - sling a few more insults at me about how ignorant I am.

    I think its to get it passed before the opinons of the people who will have to live under the legislation will be taken into account.
    '
    Another way of saying that is "They want to pass it before the 2010 election season begins becasue those who want to pass it know the majority of americans are against it and will bring irresistable pressure on their democrat representatives to vote against it"
