Harry Reid Ruined My Day

The senate tried to pass a last minute, $1.2 trillion, 1,924 page spending bill last night.  The bill had 6,630 earmarks totalling $8 billion.  Even dead senators got earmarks – $8 Million for the Edward Kennedy institute and $10 million for the John Murtha Foundation!  The Wall Street Journal called it “The 111th Congress’s Final Insult“. A cartoonist can’t ask for much more than that.  Then, just as  a 40 hour reading of the bill was about to begin, Harry Reid pulled the plug and spoiled all the fun.  He ruined 3 days worth of cartoons. I think I’ll call my congressman.

The Omaha Stakes were worth millions to Nebraska.  The Louisiana Purchase brought $100 million to that state.  Sherrod Brown voted for the health care bill too. Did Harry Reid hold out on Ohio?
