Well, it looks like more business as usual. The “Omnibus Spending Bill” now before congress is so bloated with pork, earmarks, and drastic spending increases that even some Democrats are balking.
Note the mention of influence peddling and corruption. Nothing ever changes. As long as the same breed of power-hungry crooks and petty tyrants are in Washington, and as long as they continue to ignore the Constitution, this is how things will remain.
