With all due respect, you are crossing over into Conspiracy
Nutter land here. How do you think *any* legislation gets
passed? It is by "the expenditure of money and effort".
Last I checked, a lot of legislation has passed that is
very unpopular with "arch-conservatives", so it isn't as
though they were ramrodding their agenda through.
Get a grip already. Very little has changed in Washington.
Did the world end when the watermelons had at least as much
influence in the Clinton administration? I think not, and they
are at least as evil as your "arch-conservative", whatever that
Geez, what a bunch of pathetic weenies. They can dish it out
but they can't take it when the tables are turned. Nobody
gets to change basic rules to suit their desired outcome when
things don't go their way. It does not matter who currently
holds the ball.
