A Trojan Horse Pork Bill Passes the House
K.E. Campbell

Washington is ignoring the mandate of voters, and sneaking through pork, as the media avert their eyes.

On Wednesday, the still-Democrat-controlled House approved a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government through September 30, 2011, or until the new Congress can produce a budget. According to The Hill, this Continuing Resolution was needed "because Congress failed to pass any of the 12 regular appropriations bills for 2011, in addition to failing to pass a budget resolution at all for the first time since 1974." The federal budget is supposed to be finished by October 1, the start of the government's fiscal year, otherwise "continuing resolutions" are required to keep government running.
