Yesterday, the House passed a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security, despite President Bush’s veto threat. The White House objects to a provision that would require DHS contractors to “pay their employees at least the local prevailing wage.” It also “funds the hiring of 3,000 new border patrol agents, rejects the cuts President Bush sought in the training and equipping of first responders, and improves aviation and port security.”Trillions wasted in Iraq, wheelbarrels full of money unaccounted for ..... but make contractors pay the local prevailing wage? More guards for border patrol? No cuts for first responders? Improvements for aviation and port security?
Georgie is going to veto this???
He may try to smirk his way through the last two years draped in American flags, but he will still be a miserable failure.
