Only Somewhat Dirty Spending Bill Passes

The Democrats did what we all expected, they folded on the idea of forcing a withdrawal of our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq by refusing to fund the war. They passed a bill with no time limits or other 'strings' but substantial extra pork--the vote was 280-142 in the House and 80-14 in the Senate.

The bill also includes the silly raise of the minimum wage, but it also gives tax breaks to small businesses, so there's the rough with the smooth.

On the whole, I have to put this in the Republican win column.
