S. 3297, the Advancing America's Priorities Act.

Recommended Posts

In other news, our friend Jim Harper has an excellent new blog at his

excellent website, WashingtonWatch.com. We urge you to check it out.

Jim provides the details about a bad new bill cobbled together by

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- S. 3297, the Advancing America's

Priorities Act.


This bill is a perfect example of why we need the "One Subject at a

Time Act." The bill combines 35 unrelated measures into one package.

This is Reid's attempt to get around holds Senator Tom Coburn has

placed on various pieces of earmark legislation. As a result, the

bill has been nicknamed the Coburn Omnibous bill, even though Coburn

opposes these measures.

DC Downsizer Michael Launitz also alerted us about this bill because

one of the things it contains is a "Big Brother" measure called "The

Mother's Act," which would require pregnant women and new mothers to

receive mandatory psychiatric screening and treatment for mental

disorders (translate that as more corporate welfare for drug


man wtf -_-;
