Quote Of The Day: Your Pork Laden Bill Is DOA When It Hits The House

by John Hawkins | May 4, 2006 6:05 pm

Consider the House’s rejection of Roy Blunt as a “business-as-usual” Majority Leader, their tough stance on illegal immigration, and this statement from Dennis Hastert[1] about the Senate’s ridiculous, pork laden emergency spending bill:

“As it’s currently drafted, the Senate’s $109 billion emergency spending bill is dead on arrival in the House. President Bush requested $92 billion for the War on Terror and some hurricane spending. The House used fiscal restraint, but now the Senate wants to come to the table with a tab that’s $17 billion over budget. The House has no intention of joining in a spending spree at the expense of American taxpayers.”

Is the House perfect? No, but are they starting to get the message? Oh, you better believe it!
