Stupid Bill of the Day
Posted by Print

Congress almost enjoys wasting time and money.  When they’re not orchestrating a wholesale takeover of the health care industry, they’re naming post offices or introducing worthless bills.

Take H.R. 2811, introduced by Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-FL).  The legislation would “include constrictor snakes of the species Python genera as an injurious animal.”  This is not a joke.  Not only does Rep. Meek waste our money but he apparently enjoys making the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) suffer.  The CBO put a price tag on the bill and estimated that it will not significantly impact federal spending.  Hurray.

Maybe Rep. Meek saw this movie too many times?
