Midnight Passage - Mother Jones !!! (Republican Night-Crawlers)
Midnight Passage

The House of Representatives has had lots of reasons to keep its work out of the public eye this session. On the one hand, it's been "spending money like a drunken sailor" (to quote John McCain); on the other, it's been slashing vital programs, including veterans' benefits and future Head Start funding. Who wants to see any of that in the morning papers? So it should come as little surprise that members of Congress have been working overtimelong past reporters' deadlines and under cover of darknessto pass some of their most controversial bills. -- Wasim Salfiti
