Things are tough all over!

I know many of our readers have been concerned with how to make ends meet in these tough economic times, and now we get good news from the government! Last year, before going out of sessions, Congress managed to pass itself a raise, so now they are taking home even more of your hard earned tax dollars! This will be an economic boon for anyone that knows them under the trickled on theory of economics, for instance, you may expect our own Senator Frist to invest even more money into a chain of hospitals that has a history of performing late term abortions on teenage girls.

This economic stimulus package was passed last year, but was not signed into law by "President" Bush until after the election. Under the 27th amendment, it could not take effect until a new congress is seated (interesting side note for history buffs, the 27th amendment was actually part of the original 12 amendments written by James Madison as part of the Bill of Rights, but did not get a sufficient number of States to sign off on it until the Clinton administration, when it became the most recent amendment to the Constitution.) So, had Bush not signed off on it between the November election and when Congress comes into new session in January, Congress could not have gotten this raise for themselves and we all would have suffered! Thank goodness we have a "President" so concerned with our financial well being!
