One good thing

House Democrats propose $410B spending bill

There is one good thing in this bill, a reversal of a policy that was created under Clinton and enacted under Bush, that of the free run on Mexican trucks into our cities.
In another change, the legislation bans Mexican-licensed trucks from operating outside commercial zones along the border with the United States. The Teamsters Union, which supported Obama's election last year, hailed the move.

Of course the rest of the bill is socialist crap, including loosening restrictions on travel to Cuba, but in the spirit of intellectual honesty I had to give credit for the one thing they got right.

The article does attempt to push the blame for the insane idea of Mexican trucks in America onto the Bush administration when it clearly was a part of NAFTA which was started in 1994.
