Not to rain on the parade but

of course it passed in the House - it's an election year. The House passed it knowing darn well the Senate won't. Makes all those neocon reps look as if they're actually being 'fiscally conservative' (as if a few million means anything anymore) and gives them something positive to use in their stump speeches. It's very easy to vote yea on something you know the Senate won't pass so the bill rolls off into oblivion come November. I have strong doubts the Senate will pass this.
Let's hope I'm wrong.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
