Shameful! I only support passing this piece of garbage because children need CHIP. What we REALLY NEED RIGHT NOW are four laws. 1) Congress shall pass no laws from which they are exempt. 2) All bills passed must deal with a SINGLE issue. (NO PORK OR EARMARKS). 3) Congress must write ALL bills with input from both sides of the aisle, and allow time for study and open debate. 4) If Congress fails to pass a budget, leading to a shutdown, members shall not be paid until a budget is passed and approved.
