And thank you, Mo1, for bringing this to our attention.
That's about the Gregg Amendment to the Ethics Bill that Reid and the rest of the dems DO NOT want to vote on
we were posting about it here
Could a person who has worked for say 25 years beginning at age 18 draw an early pension at age 45 because they were terminally ill? That should answer the question for Plame who is not terminal!!
Donate to Scooters defense fund - I did!
Isn't that the truth. I think they need more holiday's -- lots of holidays.
I think you are correct, but the dems won't let anything like a timeline and truth get in their way.
***I'M waiting For Mrs. Clintoon to introduce a similar bill for the WH travel office staff who had their careers ended abruptly.***
Oh my GOSH! Ain't that the truth? Good thought.
Haven't the moved to Santa Fe already to help Richardson run for POTUS?
Ya know, I think we'd better anticipate a war on all fronts. There's going to be treachery around every corner .. non-stop from here forward.
I think thomas.gov and the Library of Congress are going to be our friends. We need to learn to use them. Here's what comes up under valerie plame wilson:
Thanks for post that link .. I've been bouncing back and forth on threads and forgot to post it
The relief of Valerie Plame Wilson??? Isn't that Joe's job?
I hope Rush DOES get hold of this and lets the taxpayers know how concerned the dems are about the "little people" who have to pay for this garbage.
Maybe we should have a bill for the relief of Scooter Libby.
There is NOTHING honorable about this joker or his poc legislation.
This is going to be worth watching..
I don't know, but D.C. just won't be the same without them.....
How bout #25#:
Dates of Service: CIA, CIA (LWOP), CIA Ð(P/T 40), from 11/9/1985 to 1/9/2006--total 20 years, 7 days.
Based on the above service and your resignation on January 9, 2006, your estimated deferred annuity is $21,541.00 per year, or $1795 per month, beginning at age 56.
which seriously implies that she collected a paycheck until January 2006. And she submitted her resignation effective as soon as the twenty year mark was reached.
She should have told her husband not to write an Op-Ed in the NYTimes, if she was worried about her "cover."
FANTASTIC JOB, RB!! Hope you'll continue to be a Thomas Watcher. WooHoo .. that's what we need: more eyes on congresscritters. Forget their photo ops and nightly news, talkshow speeches. It's what they propose and vote in that matters.
I was on the Thomas website and looking at the "Yesterday in Congress" link and saw this:
45. H.R.501 : -- Private Bill; For the relief of Valerie Plame Wilson.
Sponsor: Rep Inslee, Jay [WA-1] (introduced 1/16/2007) Cosponsors (None)
Committees: House Intelligence (Permanent Select)
Latest Major Action: 1/16/2007 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on Intelligence (Permanent Select).
Is there any way we can find out more about what this is if it is a Private Bill?
"Earmarks" like this should result in an earful from more than a handful!
Wait a minute. She CHOSE to quit, and it was her responsibility to consider all the consequences of resigning BEFORE she made that decision. We the taxpayers should NOT pay for her poor judgment in this matter.
Kill the bill.
~LOL~ I bet your heart broke when you heard you had two fewer residents and they were Plame and Wilson.
I thought I read somewhere when the Plame topic was hot that she stayed only long enough to get her pension and then quit. Maybe I'm not remembering right . . . Maybe she miscalculated? ;-)
"Wow, I can't even start to speculate about what this could mean."
Help pay for her expensive new home in Santa Fe??
No I do not.
I guess Joe's book isn't selling too well.
A professinal bill to protect hoes?
I think they are dishonest, money grubbing opportunists who deserve no special treatment. Let Joe support her off his retirement and income from the sale of his book until she becomes of age to receive her pension!
But now we both do.
A private bill is one providing benefits to specified individuals (including corporate bodies). Individuals sometimes request relief through private law when administrative or legal remedies are exhausted, but Congress seems more often to view private legislation as appropriate in cases for which no other remedy is available, and when its enactment would, in a broad sense, afford equity.
No... she does get a pension, she just hasn't reached the age of 56 and so can't yet collect it. This bill is just to let her get the pension early.
"It would be interesting to see WHEN she "quit" her job; what do you want to bet it was AFTER the Vanity fair cover?"

Plame, 42, wife of Iraq war critic Joseph Wilson, will retire next month from the CIA after 20 years tracking proliferators of weapons of mass destruction, CIA officials confirmed.
It's movin' in Seattle....
I don't know whether to LMAO or cry cause it will probably get through.
It sure is! Thanks for the link, paulat.
Well .. it's out now *L*
Inslee held a small part in the Wilson/Plame saga. At was at a 2003 forum Inslee held in Shoreline that Joseph Wilson first accused someone in the White House of being involved in leaking the name of his wife. The forum was to look at intelligence failures leading up to the Iraq war. Wilson said at the event:
"I don't think we're going to let this drop. At the end of the day it's of keen interest to me to see whether or not we can get Karl Rove frogmarched out of the White House in handcuffs. And trust me when I use that name. I measure my words."
Slate later reported that it was that event that first raised the "question of whether to investigate who in the Bush administration blew Plame's cover."
There's also a link to this thread in the blog entry :-)
The woman is a ditz. Talk about not understanding the word, "covert".
She disgraces a very needed service within the CIA - the undercover agents who risk life and limb every day for our safety.
A suitable reward, no doubt, for her services...
I'm going to add this to tomorrows anger management.
I am all angered out today......:-(
I know... ;)
I can't remember when David Corn also learned that the person who had inadvertently released Valerie Plame's name was the #2 guy at State, Richard Armitage.
But he admitted that knowing who had released it didn't stop him from calling for the Bush Admnistration to admit that someone in the White House had released the information - a false smear and he knew it.
If Fitzgerald were a prosecutor with any integrity, he would start arresting people for "conspiracy" - meaning those who knew it wasn't someone IN the White House but who were yelling "fire fire" and pointing to the White House!!!
Isn't that punishable, somehow?
Libel and slander are. I know that - and David Corn, for one, has been guilty of both. What a slime.
