Isn't bribery illegal? Didn't Mike McGee get into loads of trouble for accepting bribes? So why is it okay on the federal level?

Should the CBO be required to include the cost of vote bribes in the overall cost of the bill?

J. Strupp said...

Vote "bribes" are in every bill.

Malkin forgot Nevada. We get our increase in Medicare expenses covered for a couple of years.

Gee and the red states were left out. Imagine that.

Yeah, imagine that: horse trading in the US Senate! Dan, if the red states were left out, why did you mention NV getting a bump? Challenging your own contentions?
