Follow the Bouncing Bill

Congress has lots of ways to hide what it’s doing. (Did you ask for transparency yet?) One of the most diabolical is taking the text of one bill and putting it into another just before debating and passing it. (There are some technical reasons fo...

WOW! It is going to cost that much for about six weeks. Is that why congress did not pass the 2012 Budget? I do not even make this much money in a month. So that means that I am going in debt every six weeks. It is about time that congress 'table' everything else that they are wasting taxpayers money on and pass a full budget for 2012 (NOT just a continuing resolution.

I voted against this bill (see my previous comment) but it is now showing me as voting for it. Why is my vote changing when I add a comment?

Congress has being doing this for years now. They can't get the people's business taken care off because they are to busy campaigning for re election or on vacation half the time these days. It is call a continuing resolution until they pass a budget. They should not go on break in August. They should be required to pass a budget in August for the next fiscal year which beings 1 October.
