Random Comments - June 12, 2006

The House is debating the conference report on the emergency supplemental, and the Biden amendment (see May 3) has been dropped.

This is noteworthy because the house had a similar amendment. So, both bodies agreed to an amendment, but the amendment (which carries NO cost) was dropped/rejected in conference. Testimony to the power of conference, and also to not being too hung up on vote that occur before conference.

Quite the charade, indeed.
