As a side note, I’d also like to point out that the official title of this bill (S.540) in the House is “To designate the air route traffic control center located in Nashua, New Hampshire, as the “Patricia Clerk Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center””. Seriously. Are they trying to hide this vote in the future by putting it under this Senate-originated bill? You have to look at the NOTE before you realize what it does: The measure is expected to be a vehicle to extend the public debt limit and repeal a reduction in the cost-of-living adjustment for military retirees.

Well they can try and hide it if they want, but we won’t forget this.
