The title of the bill is hilarious. It looks like it was restrained by PayGo, which is why all of the recisions, sunsets, and other modifications were included. I wonder if it was easier to get it passed from a parliamentary standpoint by paying for it this way, or if the last emergency measure they passed (which was immune from PayGo) caused too much bad publicity with the Republicans showing a little bit of spine.

Anyway, thanks for posting the bill. I feel more educated having read it. :)

So it would appear. They also needed to get it passed before August recess so they could tout the teacher payoff for the campaigns.

One would suppose Republicans demanded the bribes be taken out of previous appropriations.

Of course, they wouldn't touch The Obammunist's stimulus stash. Military was next for the socialists.
