Consented Conspiracy between Dems & Repubs?


Recommended Posts

Here's one for the CigMan:




Despite the new Democratic congressional leadership's promise of "openness and transparency" in the budget process, a CNN survey of the House found it nearly impossible to get information on lawmakers' pet projects.Staffers for only 31 of the 435 members of the House contacted by CNN between Wednesday and Friday of last week supplied a list of their earmark requests for Fiscal Year 2008, which begins on October 1, or pointed callers to Web sites where those earmark requests were posted.Of the remainder, 68 declined to provide CNN with a list, and 329 either didn't respond to requests or said they would get back to us, and didn't.

And did anyone honestly think there were going to be "big changes" by switching from Republican Underoos to nice, frilly Democratic panties? The rules of the Country Club don't change just because new people are running the bar and grill!RMT
