    Ellen, You've raised a key issue here that a lot of the unemployed don't realize. A key reason this does not pass is because of the riders and pet projects.

    How congress is allowed to add these projects to the bills is wrong.

    This practice of hiding pet projects in popular bills is an old practice that should never have been allowed. Each bill should stand or fall on its own and each spending measure should have it's own bill and it's own vote. Doing business as I suggest would wipe out massive amounts of waste and abuse routinely committed by Congress, with our tax dollars.
