House Democrats to Spend Another $94.2 Billion in 'Emergency Funds'

House Democrats are looking to pass a $94.2 billion 'Emergency Funding' spending bill. That is on top of all the other spending. I can understand the $2 billion for influenza pandemic preparation given the recent news about the swine flu, but I can not understand how they can honestly say they could not predict the amount of money they would need for war efforts.

Of particular note was the absence of $80 million needed to close Guantanamo Bay. This does not mean that the Democrats are going to block Obama's efforts to close it, but they are refusing to fund the plan until their actually is one.
