Wapedia The House passed the Farm Bill again on May 22, and the Senate shortly thereafter. President Bush again vetoed the measure, but this veto was overridden in both Houses on June 18, so the Farm Bill in its entirety has become law. H.R. 6124 . A similar situation occurred in 2005 with the Deficit Reduction Act , where in the enrolling process certain mistakes were made changing the text of the bill. In that case, the bill was considered to be law even with the mistakes since the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tem of the Senate attested that the language sent to the President was indeed the text that was passed by Congress.The entire Kentucky Congressional delegation voted for this deficit spending, at a cost of $6,102.04 by some estimates, for the average American Family, as did Kentucky Senators Mitch McConnell and Jim Bunning. So does this make these folks liars when they say they are against any legislation that is not Revenue Neutral and Deficit Neutral?
The bill originally caused controversy because the " pay-as-you-go " (Clause 10 of Rule XXI of the Rules of the United States House of Representatives ) rule was waived . That rule prohibits the consideration of bills that increase the deficit in either a six-year period or an eleven-year period.
Many of the folks against real Health Care Reform are raking in big bucks as a result of the deficit spending by the entire Kentucky Congressional delegation and Senators Mitch McConnell and Jim Bunning. Click here to see just how much these folks are raking in.
How would you like it if you could get $7,596,712 like Bickett Farms?
So my question is this are the Blue Dog Democrats and their Republican pals serious about real Health Care Reform or are they lying through their teeth when they say Revenue Neutral and Deficit Neutral is their guide to passing real Health Care Reform?
