    My GOD!

    Don't they get it?


    It is coming back up in the lame duck!


    Seriously?



    I certainly hope, once the new congress takes office, heads roll and the laws get funding to be enforced. The earmark of all earmarks! Wait it is not an earmark if it is already a law!!!!!!!!!

    ENFORCE THE DAMN LAWS!
    Travis and Crockett, are flopping in their graves
