On the one hand I am glad to see them reject a bill with so many provisions for a somewhat focused (for DC standards) bill.

On the other hand it is interesting to see Reid torpedo a bill that O had approved of. Think he might be trying to create a little separation for himself from the Prez?

Yeah, that would be too much to hope for....

There has to be some personal gain for Reid. I am thinking he may be distancing himself from O because of an upcoming election perhaps (and also because O diss'ed Las Vegas recently)?

Regardless of the motivation, a jobs bill without the pork would probably be a good thing.

Gotta agree with that. Infact any bill without pork would be good. Reid is in real trouble in November and he knows it.

Anytime that Congress is in session your wallet is in peril.

Join me in prayer for some additional Global Warming snow flakes. :)

Hey Black and Blue - haven't you seen the forecast for Washington, DC and surrounding areas for Sunday/Monday? They say we should get an additional 4 to 6 inches of new snow. That alone would be a significant snow fall most years around here, closing schools, the government and just about everything else but seeing as though the neighborhood roads haven't be cleared or treated from the blizzards of earlier this week who knows what is going to happen. I was told today by the school system to listen for the public service announcements as to whether or not the schools will be open on Monday. If the snow does develop the government will be closed because of no mass transit and no roads. Once again I say, be careful what you wish for. Lisa

Actually I did hear something about them keeping some of the provisions of the Patriot Act but they didn`t say any more than that.

Funny the government hasn't worked in a week and maybe few more days next week. See we don't need those idiots after all. :D

It's called Patriot Act 3, and it's very bad for us..
