Let's make a deal

Your Congress at work:

You want U.S. troops out of Iraq immediately? What'll it take to get you to vote on the supplemental's 2008 withdrawal date?

Will $750 million for kids health care do the trick?

How about $400 million for rural Northwest schools once dependent on federal timber sales?

Or an extra $2.9 billion in hurricane relief?

Let's make a deal.

Not sure what all this pork has to do with the Global War on Terror. But then again, I'm not a member of Congress.

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself. -- Mark Twain
