But at least this issue will be addressed, as it should be, by the voters rather than through a judicial veto
perhaps a bit more transparency on the part of the administration could have squashed most of the "rumors" , regarding the bill. the way they rushed to push it through reeked of deception. i mean here we are months after it passed and people are still confused ? why not just dumb it down so everybody can understand it and flood the media with it ? the media is all over the poor state our economy is in. there's no confusion there , so why can't they clarify the questions people have about this bill that was shoved down our throats ?
everything the government touches turns into a big steaming pile of shit that politicians use to line their pockets and suck tax payers dry , so its no wonder people are leery of it.

Mayberry, still in Iraq, testified by video from questions prepared by the committee. He said that KBR routinely sold expired food rations to the Army. The interviewer asked, "Are you saying that Halliburton deliberately falsified the number of meals they prepared and then submitted false claims for reimbursement and that they did this to make up for past amounts auditors had disallowed?" Mayberry firmly answered "Yes." He said that serving expired food ration was "an everyday occurrence, sometimes every meal." He explained that Halliburton systematically overcharged for the number of meals as well, saying, "they were charging for 20,000 meals and they were only serving 10,000 meals." Dorgan later commented, "obviously there's no honor here, by a company that would serve outdated food to our troops in Iraq."
