Strange things are afoot at the CRS
Last week I noted that the director of the Congressional Research Service was issuing some odd directives, limiting the flow of information coming from the CRS.
Nothing highlighted Congress's spending problem in last year's election more than earmarks, the special projects like Alaska's "Bridge to Nowhere" that members drop into last-minute conference reports leaving no opportunity to debate or amend them. Voters opted for change in Congress, but on earmarks it looks as if they'll only be getting more smoke and mirrors.posted by Dan on 03.27.07 at 08:51 AM
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
One party gives us bridges to nowhere, others give us spinach farms tacked on as a rider to the Iraq War bill.
Kent Brockman: With our utter annihilation imminent, our federal government has snapped into action. We go live now via satellite to the floor of the United States congress.
Im all for holding the Dems to their promises, but John Fund is not a reliable source of information. Some quotes from conservative legislators and some out-of-context bits from some memos do not make an airtight case anyway, even if his facts are accurate.posted by: Carleton Wu on 03.27.07 at 08:51 AM [permalink]
