House passes 6-month spending bill

Anonymously contributed: ========================================================================================= Unbelievable. Just unbelievable that anyone in Congress, from either political party, is so tone deaf that they would even remotely consider a NWC budget increase in light of the recent Y-12 and LANL safety and security debacles. ======================================================================================== "WASHINGTON (AP) - As its last major act before leaving Washington for the fall campaign, the House is voting to put the government on autopilot for six months. ================================================================================== The temporary spending bill is needed to avert a government shutdown when the current budget year expires Sept. 30. At issue are the day-to-day operating budgets of Cabinet agencies that are funded annually by Congress through 12 appropriations bills." ==================================================================================== "Just a handful of high-priority programs would be awarded larger increases, including a government cybersecurity initiative, wildfire suppression efforts, a drive to modernize the U.S. nuclear arsenal and processing of veteran disability claims." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.apnews.com/ap/db_45577/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=2PIynbwv&detailindex=2

The elect occupy important positions and to nothing. Inertia, bluster, impotence.

Dead men walking, but when they act out in front of a camera.

The triumph of fame over substance.

How do you reward a facility like Y-12 that practices incompetence? Why, with greater funding, of course!

When someone complains about the federal budget situation, remind them that the "super committee" that failed to reach a "grand bargain" instead resulted in this train wreck headed for "sequestration". And that one of the main drivers of that whole process is the single strongest supporter of nuclear weapons in Washington. Los Alamos may have lost Domenici, but Kyl is still there making a difference.
