Kos has the details. First Republican Allen submitted an amendment written by Senator Dick Durbin, with only a single word changed, as his own. Now Republican Burns claims to have co-sponsored an amendment that was sponsored solely by Democrat Senator Max Baucus.

Why don't the Republicans, WHO CONTROL CONGRESS, just start passing intelligent legislation on their own??!??
