  •  Murtha has the first shot at it... (5+ / 0-)

    ...again, in the House Appropriations Committee.  So I think the biggest change we'll see is the same bill with maybe some of the "pork" stripped out.

    Bush doesn't listen to anyone but the competing voices in his head. The winner he calls "God" and runs with it.

    •  This is what he said other day with Wolf (4+ / 0-)

      the video at C&L (or YouTube) with Wolf trying to grill Murtha about "aren't you just going to have to give him the money anyway, after he vetoes it? You can't NOT give him the money..."

      And Murtha relays the "he chose to not fund the troops, he's overspent on other things, and now he wants even more; well he's going to have to play on our terms, not his" (not exact quote).

      When Wolf pressed him further about "what do you do if her vetoes it?" -- Murtha talked a bit about a "clean bill" with no additional tag-on funding projects. But he said they will not yield on the timetable/benchmarks.

      I hope they mean it.
