What we have now is a new and different form of earmarks. That is, the GOP is going to demasculate the EPA due to outlandish profits by Texas oil & gas. The government has already spent billions on super fund sites due to lack of concern and regulation over our environment. This is not to mention allowing the farm industry to pollute our waters to the point that lakes in Ohio are unsafe for even boating.

"It is morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to fund organizations that provide and promote abortion."

Isn't it also morally wrong to take millions of dollars from pro-life Americans and use them to fund wars that kill thousands of innocent people every year?

"The only people in this town rooting for a government shutdown are Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid," said House Speaker John Boehner, R-West Chester, Ohio, about the Democratic leaders of Congress.

Let the Speaker of the House take responsibility because he now controls how fast this legislation moves. His rules and committees crafted this bill and now he wants Nancy Pelosi to take the rap. He sounds like a cry baby!
