    if so, good for them. it's a bad bill

    BINGO! And might I add for once a Conservative spoke the truth on the underhandedness within the GOP (in this case anyway). The amendment was added on purpose for a specific purpose - TO BLOCK THE BILL FROM BEING PASSED...a bill that was voted unamiously in favor of by the Senate BEFORE the amendment was added!!!

    Finally, someone within the Republican party took the blinders off and saw things for what they truly are. My hat goes off to you, jamesrage.

    (Sorry...I know I said I'd hold off on my response, but once I notied that a Conservative made the connection, there really was no reason to delay.)

    No. The original bill obviously was just fine the way it was. The GOP didn't have to add anything to it for the President sign it. It was fine "AS-IS".

    Re: Republicans block child nutrition bill

    Gawd I hope the Dems don't try some shenanigans to pass it.

    Republicans block child nutrition bill - wtop.com
    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. said the House would hold separate votes on Thursday on the amendment and the bill.Republicans say the nutrition bill is too costly and an example of government overreach.
    "It's not about making our children healthy and active," said Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the top Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee. "We all want to see our children healthy and active. This is about spending and the role of government and the size of government _ a debate about whether we're listening to our constituents or not."

    Re: Republicans block child nutrition bill

    But again...

    The original bill was just fine. Who added the additional $4.6M to it and why? The original expenditures were being funded under the SNAP program and would NOT have cost the tax payers another cent. So, why the amendment when it was unanimously approved by the Senate last August? The GOP didn't think the government was over-reaching with this piece of legislation then? So, what's changed between August and December, 2010?

    seriously dude, it's just politics as usually. no big revelation. nothing to see here, move along. both parties do it all the time.

    just another democrat squealing foul because the GOP had the balls to use their own tactics against them.

    So, this justifies the GOP to once again be the "Party of NO" when just after the midterms and more recently as Monday of this week (11/29/10) they claimed to work towards bipartisanship? I call BS!

    If the bill was fine w/o the amendment, it should have been fine in it's original form "AS-IS" to send to the President for signature.

    Apparently someone thought differently.

    The bill increased the size of government, and allows 501(c) to get their hands on taxpayer money. It should have been stopped. I am glad it was. The people have spoken, they don't want to increase government.

    dat's the problem, the bill wasn't fine. it's a bad bill and the GOP used this "underhanded trick" to stop it from passing.
