In defense spending bill, a map around congressional gridlock
from The Washington Post
It's quite amazing what Congress can do when there is bipartisan agreement among the leadership and public attention is focused elsewhere. Consider that it passed a single piece of legislation that deals with controversial subjects such as health care costs, gun control and environmental problems, but the bill went through the House and the Senate under unanimous consent agreements - with hardly a murmur during the lame-duck session.
