The Trade Off Bill...

This is the bill the Dem leadership agreed to support in exchange for the FISA/Immunity legislation.

It passed overwhelmingly June 26th and is headed to the president's desk to be signed, only IF the FISA/Immunity bill passes intact...

This is what you get in exchange for your Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

Some VA benefits, unemployment dollars, flood relief money, international aid money, SCHIP and Medicaid money until April '09, a GI bill update, some road work, and some fraud tracking measures for the money wasted in wars overseas...

Here's what they get. A load of money for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars... More money than god... oh yeah, and they get off on felony and probably impeachable offenses against the Constitution and the American people.

Total spending estimate in this bill is somewhere around $100 billion (according to a GOP estimate in May), about 70% of which goes to the war nobody wants...

They vote to solidify this "deal" today by taking away your fourth amendment rights. I'm dumbfounded...
