Congress Can't Count - No Wonder They Can't Stay on BudgetSubmitted by 2ndamenduser on Fri, 10/11/2013 - 20:46
I just downloaded a .pdf file of the NDAA. Look what I found:
6 SEC. 2. ORGANIZATION OF ACT INTO DIVISIONS; TABLE OF
8 (a) DIVISIONS.—This Act is organized into four divi
9 sions as follows:
10 (1) Division A–Department of Defense Author11
12 (2) Division B–Military Construction Author13
14 (3) Division C–Department of Energy National
15 Security Authorizations and Other Authorizations.
16 (4) Division D–Funding Tables.
17 (5) Division E–SBIR and STTR Reauthoriza18
Line 8 claims the act is organized into FOUR divisions; yet FIVE are listed! (lines 10-17)
No wonder we can't trust them to stay on budget. They can't even count!
Adds a whole new perspective to the phrase, "Give 'em an inch and they'll take a mile."
These critters will give themselves inches and take MILES!
