Arizona Congressman Jeff Flake on the worst bills passing through Congress

Economic Stimulus Package: “Any time Republicans and Democrats can so easily agree on legislation as expensive as this, it’s not a good sign."

Quite. Also, a reminder of hos the sausage is made. To wit, the Omnibus Appropriations Bill:

Congress rolled 11 appropriations bills into one massive package and passed it in late December. House members had less than 24 hours to read the legislation before we voted on it. We’re still finding out what’s actually in the bill. But we do know it contained nearly 12,000 earmarks. That was reason enough to vote ‘no.’”
