The Editors, The Wall Street Journal, Regarding Congress and the Farm Bill:
“President Bush vetoed the $300 billion farm bill yesterday, and a bipartisan throng in the House promptly voted to override. The Senate is expected to follow shortly. Every one of these Congressional worthies purports to be an advocate of ‘change.’
“Yet you couldn't write a piece of legislation that more thoroughly represents the Beltway status quo than this one. In every way imaginable, and even a few more, it repeats and compounds the spendthrift errors of previous farm bills.”
Did Obama vote for this Beltway Bill? Isn't he always criticizing the Beltway crowd?
