Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (R-Ill.)

Last time I checked, Dickie Durbin was a 'rat, not a Republican.

Revenue bills do have to originate in the House.

A sympathetic revenue bill ORIGINATING in the Senate has the stench of Harry Reid all over it.  Guaranteed to be blocked by anybody paying attention to the Constitution. Meanwhile we send 1.5 billion to Egypt and the brotherhood with nary a sentence from the Hill.   :thud:
