Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 03:28 PM by TayTay
This amendment FAILED to provide more money for Rail and Transit security. Who voted against it again? Gee, looks like a lot of Republican names here.

3. Gee, those Republicans. What a wacky bunch
I thought they were serious about Homeland Security and stopping terrorism. Silly me, they were just kidding. We got punk'd. We only want Homeland Security when it looks like the Democrats are trying to get ahead.

6. I have to leave work now
Can some very enterprising SUers go to the Congressional REcord for July 10-13 and find some great Republican quotes on how much they really, really, really wanted to fund anti-terrorism measures in Indiana and at the bean supper. I bet there are a lot of them.
