Gregg is setting them up for the "test" of fiscal discipline on which the dems campaigned.

Gregg is one of the Senators that I enjoy listening/watching..

Conrad is his smarmy self...saying this isn't the NEW congress.

Well...then if I were Gregg...I would say that they will kick the can to next year.

Conrad is up saying there is no budget so the Dems aren't doing anything wrong

Then says the new congress isn't in yet .. that this is still the old congress

Conrad claims this amendment is not breaking the budget because they've done this type of thing in the past

Gregg asked if this amendment falls under Rule 16

Looks like Gregg can kill this bill

Conrad up talking about a super majority vote and imploring Gregg not to apply Rule 16

My hope is that the GOP makes the Dems' bills require as many 60 vote miniumum as possible.

I am still in shock over how many good Senators and Congresspeople we lost....

Especially when you look across the aisle...and see people that never should have been there...and have stayed, and stayed.

I have come to the conclusion that it was to play for time. They obviously got their differences worked out by agreeing to bring up an Ag bill and pass it so they can stick all of that extra spending in it.

They kept all of those suffering farmer (agribusiness) amendments out of the military construction bill. They just put them in another bill and promised to pass that tomorrow. Kent Conrad suddenly became gracious.

Thanks, Sleuthy. :-)

Saw your ping on Mark Levin. I've been interested in Bush's noncommittal comments about the Iraq Study Group the last couple of days.

My fingers are crossed that he will tell them to go pound sand. &&&

See ya tomorrow. :-)

ooopsy.

I saw a poster complaining last night about how their state, and other southern and western states are having to pay extra..because of the health care, education, etc for illegal immigrants...and it isn't fair..because not all states have to.

I thought about this bill by the people in North Dakota and elsewhere, that are wanting "katrina money" for their drought.

I figured we could call it even...ALL states have something that "isn't fair".....lol

Yeppers....Conrad read the notes from yesterday..when Frist said they would take up the Ag Bill today...

Conrad is very upset that he has to stop the Senate to bring this up....lol

BTW...for some reason, it is really making me uncomfortable (I can't explain why)...when Frist gets up and talks about what "they need to get done"...

Of course he can carry on...business as usual...he is walking away..and it is getting on my nerves.

I sorta wish he would just let McConnell take over now...because McConnell needs to establish himself as the leader...because it will be HE that has to worry about what doesn't get done in this lame duck session.

Boy...I need to get rid of this little glob of bitterness I am still suffering from....LOL

Conrad was saying earlier that in years past...there was 8 and 9 Billion dollars appropriated for disaster relief...

But, they are only talking about 3 billion for 2 years, right now.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm...I guess that "fiscal responsibility" that the dems ran on...just went out the window..in 2 days.
