I don’t suppose any of that money will go toward the adult daycare services my husband is currently being refused by TriCare and Medicare, because disabled vets don’t qualify for it like welfare queens do.

I am so sorry to hear that. Disgusted that our veterans are not taken care of too. Something should be done to make this right.

Thank your vet his service for me.

The House of Representatives John Boehner on Wednesday passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill.

Corrected title for realism.

This is why being an ideological purist is relevant.

Hey that’s not fair. Why everyone had over a day and a half to read the mere 1582 page bill!

Something weird was going on with this bill.
Ended up passing with only 3 Dems and 64 Rs voting against it.

Who are the lonely 67? I suspect they are mostly conservative Republicans with almost no Democrats. Boehner got all or almost all of the Rats and a great majority of the GOP Reps. We will have to dig in there to find any hope.

we’ve been spending at a rate of approx. $3.8 trillion annually for the last 5 years... or about $1.27 trillion every 4 months.

and this $1.1 trillion spending package is supposed to last 8 months? that’s more then a 50% cut in the spending rate. how are they doing that?

you’ll excuse me if I don’t believe them. I fully expect them to stop reporting the spending once they hit the new ceiling, just like they did last year

Thanks. I told him, and it cheered him up. I’m still not telling him about post #7. He’s too old. He’d get hurt.

Now now impatient FReepers...we don't have a majority in Congress. Also, this spending bill is out of the way now, so our Republican heroes can fight tooth and nail against Obamacare again. Right?

Patience, you fringe, wacko, far-right extremists!

“I don’t suppose any of that money will go toward the adult daycare services my husband is currently being refused by TriCare and Medicare, because disabled vets don’t qualify for it like welfare queens do.”


They should all be ashamed for this and remembered through the lens of infamy by our posterity. The problem is that our posterity will be in chains and will not have the benefit of accurate history do to the captivity and bondage these scoundrels and swindlers bequeath them.

This is the worst of all possible outcomes:

1) Veterans have been shafted badly.
2) This bill is huge in number of pages; who knows what Obama and company have put in it?
3) This bill is huge in number of dollars; no way will this spending be sustainable.
4) It runs out right before the 2014 election. I GUARANTEE THE DEMOCRATS WILL SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE ELECTION, and the PRESS WILL BLAME REPUBLICANS.

I guess it could be worse. There could be a repeal of the 2nd Amendment tucked in those 1500+ pages. Oh, wait, no one has read it. There might be.
