Democrats Bow to Bush's Demands in House Spending Bill
House Democratic leaders yesterday agreed to meet President Bush's bottom-line spending limit on a sprawling, half-trillion-dollar domestic spending bill, dropping their demands for as much as $22 billion in additional spending but vowing to shift funds from the president's priorities to theirs.

House Set To Consider Year-End Spending Package Dec. 18
The House appears on track to consider a year-end omnibus spending bill Dec. 18, one week after Democratic leaders had planned to bring up a costlier version that was ditched after a White House veto threat.

The omnibus package would result in a topline discretionary level of $936.5 billion—$3.7 billion above the President’s request.

Mega-Bill May Shut Down Revamped Regulatory Review Process
Congress' undeclared War on American Jobs may advance in the coming days via the giant "omnibus" spending bill sought by the Democratic majority. Congressional leaders are expected to slip language into their massive year-end bill that would derail a reform initiative aimed at stopping the federal bureaucracy from accidentally imposing unnecessary regulatory burdens on the private sector that destroy jobs and hamper economic growth.
