    • On December 14, 2010, by scooter47 - As I understand this bill, it is termed a "continuing resolution" to fund the USG until a formal budget is passed. Because this is a "must pass" bill or the government has to shut down, the special interests found this bill ideal to include self-serving special provisions, pork and "riders". In particular I strongly object to Section 2727 which amends a 76 year old federal act and overturns a 2009 US Supreme Court decision. Regardless whether you agree with the purpose for Section 2727 or not, I hope everyone (except the special interests that support this Section) would agree that legislation this significant deserves an open debate and legal review and therefore should be a "stand-alone" bill and follow regular order. Until Section 2727 is removed I urge Congress to vote NO on this bill. Let's send a message to Congress that we're tired of business as usual and we oppose slipping special interest "riders" into must-pass bills late in a lame-duck session of Congress!
