Oops started a new thread about this one... sorry.... anyways are there any updates. Last I heard the Senate was voting on this today? did it originate in senate or house? And if so do you think it will pass the house. God I hope not. I am so damn sick of the congress eliminating my rights illegitimately.
Instead of trying to create monolithic pieces of legislation, they should take each issue and make it a separate piece of legislation and let it stand or fail on its own merits (or lack thereof). Just think what they might have been able to do with budget reduction if they would just vote on the things that people could actually agree upon!
For the past three decades, I've thought this should be the case. But it would be filling in all the holes of the "cookie jar."

They couldn't even get the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) to pass...

These days, we need a Balanced Budget Amendment. It's really a sad thing that we need one in order to get the Congress-Critters to do what they are SUPPOSED to do in the first place -- BE FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE.
