WASHINGTON (CNN) — The bill creating a Department of Homeland Security faced a new hurdle Tuesday following an announcement by Republican Sen. John McCain that he would side with Democrats on a key vote to strip seven “special-interest” provisions from the bill passed last week by the GOP-led House.
“I don’t support a process where the House of Representatives throws a major piece of legislation over to the Senate and says good-bye,” McCain said Monday.
McCain’s switch, as well as the uncertain votes of a handful of Democratic senators and independent Dean Barkley of Minnesota, left the bill’s passage in doubt.
The laundry list of shit the House Publicans added to the original 35 page bill has resulted in it growing to 484 pages in length. Check out the list in the article of the crap they want to add.
And Tom DeLay has the balls to call the Dems obstructionists? What a bunch of shit!
