Let's see, shall we Tricky Dickie?
The omnibus spending bill that passed the House contained explicit language that prohibits funding for the closure of Gitmo and the transfer of detainees to U.S. soil. The provisions were roundly attacked by Eric Holder and the DOJ.
But guess what? The Senate version of the omnibus includes a superseding provision that would allow the transfer of detainees to the U.S. for the purpose of conducting civilian trials.
Craptastic. Yessirree all we need is terror trials at Thomson, IL with O'Hare the closest major airport. We have to keep fighting the same battles over and over again because of these lying Dem slime. They tried to pull a fast one last Christmas too as I recall. Because they figure most good folks would be otherwise engaged.
This omnibus is a cornucopia --how about this one, a TOTAL waste of time given the corrupt power grab of Sen. Durbin and his ilk:
$74,085,000 in total for three educational programs--the National Writing Project, Reading is Fundamental, and Center for Civic Education--by several representatives and senators.
Is this worth wrecking our economy? Pork and more PORK. And that's just the stuff we think we know about.
More. A look at earmarks in the omnibus and your relative tax burden.
