Big deal. A house bill. yippee.
Won't get passed the Senate. This bill will get through and it will get signed. The pubs get exactly what they want and just made huge fools of the dems who may as well have dug in and shown Bush the same stubbornness he shows everyone else. But they folded. This war has just been funded for another year and Congress now has absolutely NO LEVERAGE to force this issue before the next fiscal year by which time our military will be bled bone dry. Then Congress, in desperation, will have to raise taxes to get revenue flowing and so become those damned tax-raising democrats we're always hearing about.
They've cut their own throats and I've cut my ties with them. If I wanted this fucking funding to go through I'd have damned well voted fucking republican! That's all right. I'll get the last word in 08.
