This is what happens when you rush a vote.
Here’s a funny story that illustrates what happens when you rush through a vote without reading and proofreading the bill.
When he earmarked $100,000 in taxpayer spending to go to Jamestown’s library, Rep. James E. Clyburn meant for it to go to the library in Jamestown, S.C., which is in his district.
But in the bustle to write and pass the $1.1 trillion catchall spending bill, Congress ended up designating the money for Jamestown, Calif. – 2,700 miles away and a town that doesn’t even have a library.
As Molly used to say to Fibber, “Tain’t funny McGee!”
