So a few commenters pointed out that there was much more to the bill, which I did actually read.  I was under the impression that Bush could use his powers of line-item veto and in my head, that meant he could scratch everything out except for that 3.5% pay increase.  Heh…  Let’s just say that I am having a really hard few days, and with no light at the end of the tunnel just yet, this seemed like a good thing to pounce on.  While I am still highly irate that there will not be another .5% raise coming to us any time, soon, I admit that there were several items in that bill that I am pleased did not pass.

          We’ll have to keep an eye on that one…
