Stop-Gap Budget

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) Sunday night unveiled a stop-gap budget plan designed to keep the government running until March 4.  If you want to read the bill – here it is. As you will see, it’s filled with a lot of fine print that some might call legislative legalese, or maybe ‘mumbo-jumbo.’

  SA 4885. Mr. REID proposed an amendment to the bill H.R. 3082, making appropriations for military construction, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, and for other purposes; as follows:
