My way or the Highway

Don't you love Congress. A billion here, a billion there, but you know the rest:
The U.S. Senate yesterday passed a $295 billion highway bill with a vote of 89 to 11, putting Congress on a collision course with President George W. Bush, who said he would veto any bill that exceeds the $284 billion House version. The current highway bill, which has been extended six times, is set to expire on May 31.
These are the same stingy guys that wouldn't come across with a few bucks for sick kids.

If only children drove trucks.
