Last Week Sen. Reid Insisted on “Clean” CR/Debt Bill, But Puts Pork in Final Deal

What hypocrites!!!!!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (unfortunately from my own state) spent most of last week insisting that a House bill to end the government shutdown would sail through the Senate if it was a “clean” bill, that is, it would deal only with that issue and have no extra provisions. President Obama and other Democrats in Congress echoed that sentiment.

But the Senate negotiators could not resist putting some pork in the final version of the deal passed by both chambers tonight. See a detailed list in this article at cnn.com.
