Senate Actions Today

For those of you not watching CSPAN2 this morning, I thought I'd give you an update on some of the amendments being offered on the defense spending bill:
1. An amendment that would prohibit federal courts from hearing cases challenging prayer in the military.
2. An amendment requiring children (under 18) of military personnel living on military installations seeking abortions to get parental consent.
3. An amendment prohibiting people convicted of capital crimes from being buried in military cemetaries.
Just a reminder, all of these are amendments to a SPENDING BILL!!

Spending bills are the primary way in modern america to pass legislation that would never pass on it's own merits.

If you're in the military you should have to prey, no ifs ands or buts. Suck it up soldier!
