And behind the scenes bills keep being dropped into the hopper. Some of these will make it through the process but probably none before Labor Day!

Congress has finally awakened to how bad the Obama Administration is about the nitty gritty details of the legislative process. On this blog I predicted the demise of the Daschle appointment would kill health care reform. Is he helping the Administration probably but without the clout and competence he could have brought to the table. Still predicting no passage of health care reform this year. coulutfepSalhowdn
