Only in Congress

The House version of the bill spends $14 billion.  The Senate version spends $15 billion.  So what is the compromise between the two.  14.5?  No, spend $23.2 billion!

    And the war on earmarks dies a silent death, unnoticed by anyone.

    Dubya finally grew a pair and vetoed this bill. I doubt they'll directly override the veto, but I also very much doubt that the same earmarks won't appear in other bills, probably linked to things that he cannot veto.
