    The creation of the Department of Homeland Security was also a Hart-Rudman recommendation opposed by Bush until after 9-11, and it wasn't until after he was able insert an anti-labor poison pill into the bill that he finally supported it. Then he accused Democrats of opposing homeland security because they didn't like the anti-labor provisions. I'd say it doesn't get more devious and cynical then that, but of course it does.

    One insertion in the bill was that companies who used off-shore tax-dodges couldn't be given Government contracts. The Republicans removed that pretty damn quick.
