There may be more out there, but at least there is one person watching what is in these bills that are coming through in the rush.
The healthcare bill has been out there for quite some time now and all legislators have had plenty of time to go over all the spending in's and out's. What are publicity grabbing Mz. Bachmann is seeing that none of the rest of them have seen is a mystery. Gee! Could it be her ongoing wish to be the center of attention? That would be my guess. I wish the press would ignore her like the other legislators do. And as for Mr.Bohener's comment about "slush funds" - The medical and drug industries have been furnishing the GOP with "slush" money for years to influence their will.
IF Ms. Bachmann does try a run for President, can you imagine the wonderful commercials we would see? Would be fun, but she wouldn't have a chance in heck. My opinion only.
mankato58 - Here is the fallacy of your claim - at least one person is watching what is in these bills ----- Bachmann claims the bill hides billions, yet there is nothing in the bill that proves her claims. So what the h--- is she watching? If she told you there was water in a bucket and all you saw was sand, would you say she is right? Come on man, think for yourself!!!!!!!!!

I know that there has to be a lot of spending for that wasteful bill if they are going to keep operating it. We had it rammed through without anyone reading it the first time, so I have no problem with others slowing it down now. As far as the current budget as a whole - It was last year's work and responsibility. They passed it off, so this year it is going to take some time to get it done. No reason to rush now!
