The new Iraq spending bill will NOT include a timetable for withdrawl. Nor will it be weighed down with a lot of other pieces of legislation, either. The one key piece of legislation that will be added to the Iraq spending bill will be the minimum-wage increase.
Two birds with one stone, and those are two birds I wanted to get!
Adding to my moment of joy with Congress is the news that this Immigration "compromise" may end up being defeated due to the enormous amount of amendments combined with the rising opposition to this bill.
So all-in-all, not a bad day for me.
