    Senate's agenda grows as the clock ticks

    Senate's agenda grows as the clock ticks

    Senate's agenda grows as the clock ticks - Washington Times


    Forget about going quietly into the night.

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday unveiled a broad agenda for an end-of-session sprint that otherwise could be a whole year's worth of activity including an arms-reduction treaty with Russia, a major immigration reform bill and legislation overturning the ban on openly gay military service members.

    That's not to mention the nearly 2,000-page, $1.1 trillion spending bill that contains hundreds of pork-barrel projects and new rules governing things such as airport baggage and the fate of detainees at the military prison at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    "We're not through. Congress ends on Jan. 4," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat.

    What is likely to get the most attention is the omnibus spending bill, spanning 1,924 pages and spending what amounts to an average of $575.13 million per page.



    Spend spend spend..... They are clueless or they don't care that the reason they lost so bad this past election is due to the spending.....

    They don't care. Never did. It's not about us, nor has it ever been for the Pelosi/Reid/Obama types.

    We have to watch closely....Another Christmas, another 2000 page, Trillion dollar waste of money. These progressives are seeing their great hope of destroying America as we know it come to a close and they failed.

    If anybody thinks that excessive spending is a partisan issue you're deluding yourself

    I said "progressives" I didn't limit it to liberals, conservatives, repubs, or demo's....There are progressives throughout.
