Whose Bill was This, Anyhow?

Fox News is reporting that the Porkulus bill passed in such a rush last week includes caps on executive pay that were much more restrictive than the President or the Treasury Secretary wanted.  Senator Chris Dodd is credited with inserting language for the tougher restrictions.

The President was all over the airwaves and newspapers calling this “his package.”  Now we find out that it’s not so much….screwed over by one of his own guys!  What about all the praise and wonder over Obama’s masterful handling of the bill?  Seems somewhat undeserved at this point, and we haven’t even gotten to the good part–actually implementing the bill’s provisions.

It would probably have helped to actually have read the bill before passing it, eh?

Hand me some duct tape; my head’s starting to explode.
