Although I have not read the finance bill , I am leery of these giant bills. You sound as if you have read it,Scott, and understand what is in it. I assume you are working for your constituents in MA., including those financial companies I use.
With that said, the Dems have been governing so hard against the will of the people , it seems to me the people deserve to be heard in the next election , much like they spoke in yours. I think waiting for all major legislation until after the election out of respect for the citizens is a sensible compromise. If the people change governments so be it and likewise if they ratify the course the Obama administration is on then that is that. I don't see the need to rush anything though right now unless it is to sidestep the voice of the voters. What would be lost if you take a bit of time , maybe look over those 2000 pages a bit more, and let all the voters tell you what we think in Nov.
Thanks for this forum , it is a good opportunity to share some real opinions.
