Right now, the only hope that this thing gets less offensive is if we take a long look at HR1 and see the crap in it and get that out to our lazy reps who oftentimes do not actually read the bill. Maybe some of the worst crap, like the ACORN funds, health care takeover, and various "Bridges to nowhere" can get cut out in conference. I don't expect it.
Go to Thomas and see the real thing for yourself and how bad this thing is.
This is the "change" provided by the Obama administration and the post 2006 Congress. They spend so much that they make the Bush and 2002-2006 Republicans look like true fiscal conservatives. We've gone from fiscal leftism to blatent socialism.
Where's the 1994 Republicans when we need them.
