Politics the problem, not Doolittle

Does a family earning $60,000 a year need government (make that taxpayers) assistance for child care? Let’s thank Congressman Doolittle for joining with other Republicans to vote against a bill the Democrats purposely loaded with extra benefits, just for thwarting the original child-care bill initiated by George W. Bush. President Bush will not veto a renewal of his original child-care bill, but he is saving us a lot of money by vetoing the Democrats’ excessive ballooning of the bill.

If the FBI is unable to find a problem in three years concerning Congressman Doolittle, there isn’t anything but politics behind the problem.
