Senators Got 154-Page 'Fiscal Cliff' Bill 3 Minutes Before Voting on It





http://cnsnews.com/news/article/sena...utes-voting-it




The U.S. Senate voted 89-8 to approve legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff despite having only 3 minutes to read the 154-page bill and budget score.

Multiple Senate sources have confirmed to CNSNews.com that senators received the bill at approximately 1:36 AM on Jan. 1, 2013 a mere three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 AM.

The bill is 154-pages and includes several provisions that are unrelated to the fiscal cliff, including repealing a section of ObamaCare, extending the wind-energy tax credit, and a rum tax subsidy deal for Puerto Rican rum makers.

The bill avoids the fiscal cliff by making permanent the Bush tax cuts for individuals making less than $400,000 per year and couples making less than $450,000 and by putting off the automatic spending cuts (sequestration) from last years debt ceiling deal until March.

Technically, those Bush tax rates had expired at midnight on Dec. 31, 2012 and the spending cuts were scheduled to take place when the government reopened following the New Years Day holiday.

That's their own fault. Do it without a deadline looming and the point is moot. And I'm pretty sure they knew what was in it prior to the final print.

I'm sure their leadership kept them covered by what was in it and gave bullet points. This is as big a non-story as those who claimed they had no time to read the Obamacare bill when they took a whole year and more to work on it.

Exactly, complete non-story. Everyone knew what the provisions of the bill were, reading the actual text is pointless for everyone except the committee chairs and their aides who draft them. Almost all of that 154 pages is copy and pasted from other bills, too.

Buried on page 132 was the regulation that Obamaphones are now IPhone5 and for an additional dollar, the welfare queens and her six babies can get an IPad3. They also get a free gas card for $100.

On page 72, we've invaded Botswana for their iron ores.

If they did not read it or have time to read it then just reject it. This dog don't hunt, sounds like an excuse for going along with it to me~

Cosmo doesn't believe it...so it must be true!

Seriously though...i am sure this goes on all the time...part of the problem with the way government is run. Probably would be a story except this happens all the time and is apparently accepted by most.

Also....

Never mind--I now see that it is linked on Drudge. So, I do believe it now.
