The Budget Deal is a Budget Deal and a Spending Deal

Contrary to expectations, Congress came up with a budget deal last week. The House passed it, and the Senate is expected to debate and pass H.J. Res. 59 early this coming week. First, let’s review how wrong we were last week to assume a budget de...

It is an accepted fact that significant fraudulent claims are being paid both to welfare beneficiaries and to Medicare providers. As a rule of common sense, such fraud will be rampant if no method of verification of the applicant's eligibility is not in place. This will be just another government boondoggle.

Get rid of the 'and for other purposes' and quit hiding stuff that is not pertinent to the bills you are wasting the taxpayers time on.

The previous comments related to the bill before it became the Continuing Appropriations Act. In its original form, H.R. 2775 was a bill to "condition the provision of premium and cost-sharing subsidies under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act upon a certification that a program to verify household income and other qualifications for such subsidies is operational."

A little pork, but nothing too surprising. The specifics for "Highly Qualified" teachers is a little baffling, but three amendments to the 2011 CR law were almost too much for me to follow at only 0730!

It seems that the emergency relief fund statement garnered some interest in the media, but those authorizations are normal and it was a timely coincidence, just the same as the appropriation for Mrs. Lautenberg. Making a media event out of either is inappropriate and shameful.

Don't get me wrong, though. An actual appropriations bill rather than this patchwork "look at America the third-world-economy" CR is highly desirable. I don't understand how the current Congress or administration can stand this. Why can't they do their jobs (better)?
