The House of Representatives just narrowly defeated an amendment to deny funds to operate Vice President Dick Cheney’s office. Cheney had insisted that his office is exempt from Executive Department oversight by arguing that he is not part of that department. Rep. Rahm Emanuel proposed the amendment as a counter to that incredible claim.
The measure was defeated 209-217, with most Republicans and 24 Democrats siding with Cheney. GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul of Texas and Walter Jones of North Carolina voted in favor of defunding Cheney’s office.
Gee Congress, I wonder why your approval ratings are lower than the president's? Gee, I wonder why Dubya believes that he can get away with anything, legal or not? Gee, I wonder...
Bet you're going to fucking roll right over and, just like always, be the good little lapdogs you are and do nothing of substance in reponse to Dubya refusing the subpoena you recently issued, too. You dickless, stinking cowards.
