    War spending bill includes delays to pilot for Mexican truck

    sry if this is a repeat... are democrats changing their position suddenly?

    http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/m...cantrucks.html


    WASHINGTON – Provisions to delay a White House plan, giving trucks from Mexico unrestricted access to U.S. highways, is in the $120 billion Iraq spending bill President Bush is expected to sign Friday.

    Congress passed the revised spending bill Thursday, providing $95 billion for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan through September. It does not include a troop withdrawal timeline favored by Democrats that drew Bush's veto once before.

    The legislation also includes several requirements, such as a certification from the Department of Transportation inspector general verifying safety and inspection requirements before the Mexican truck pilot can start. The Bush administration wanted to start a one-year pilot this year, and if successful, fully open the border to Mexican trucks.

    Teamsters President Jim Hoffa praised Congress for restricting “the Bush administration's reckless plan to throw open our borders to unsafe Mexican trucks ... (and) for acting quickly to keep our roads safe.

    What in the heck does the Mexican trucks have to do with the war? That's like putting a pork provision for a NASA project in with a bill for putting aside funds for research on herpes. This my freinds is called fiscal responsibility. It is the logic one acquires after earning an MBA. Sounds like we need to fire a bunch of idiots. God help us!

    Plan to allow Mexican trucks to travel our highways

    Rockfish, the reason the House included a provision in the Iraq Spending Bill to stop Mexican trucks from coming into our country, is because that's the only way they knew Bush would sign it. Bush desperately needs that money for the troops, and as the House and Bush have been bickering over the Iraq War for a while now, each side had to concede something. This is the only good thing I have seen Congress do in years, and it's a baby step for America toward stopping the illegal immigrants from flooding into our country.
