Political games being played

The House recently passed something that a number of legislators refer to as a “Garbage Bill.” Others are calling it a “Bailout Bill.” Either nickname is well-deserved.

Democrats took all sorts of mismatched, unrelated tax-and-spend provisions, lumped them together and passed them all in a massive 436-page bill that spends $1.2 billion through 2017. Many of the provisions never would have passed on their own merit, but rode the coattails of the few valuable measures included.
