July 20, 2010

The House and Senate are going on vacation again in a few weeks and that means a big push to get things done before they do.

It also means lots of new spending.

The Hill reports today the Senate is set to vote on more than $100 billion in new spending this week. That figure includes $34 billion to extend unemployment benefits and $81.3 billion to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
