How Bad Is The Highway Bill?

So bad that two members of the House Republican leadership voted against

it: majority whip Roy Blunt and deputy whip Eric Cantor. The president

threatened to veto a bill that was larger than $256 billion. The House

bill is $276 billion, and the Senate bill is $318 billion. If the final

bill is not a lot smaller, the president will have to make good on his

veto threat–and at least two members of the Republican leadership will

support him.
