The Lame Duck Congress’ Last Gasps: Ignoring the Voters’ Restraining Order

December 18, 2010

The Lame Duck Congress is going into overdrive to pass legislation, Democrats didn’t have the courage to bring up before the election and now want to jam through before they lose power in the new House and are weakened in the Senate.

One such attempt failed this week: a trillion dollar omnibus spending bill that was supposed to make up for Congress failing to pass a budget for the fiscal year that started October 1. Fortunately, Senate Republicans stood firm and Harry Reid had to withdraw the bill.

Time for the Lame Duck Congress to go home.
