CNS | Senators Got 154-Page ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Bill 3 Minutes Before Voting on It





(CNSNews.com) – The U.S. Senate voted 89-8 to approve legislation  to avoid the fiscal cliff despite having only 3 minutes to read the  154-page bill and budget score.

Multiple Senate sources have confirmed to CNSNews.com that senators  received the bill at approximately 1:36 AM on Jan. 1, 2013 – a mere  three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 AM.

The bill is 154-pages and includes several provisions that are  unrelated to the fiscal cliff, including repealing a section of  ObamaCare, extending the wind-energy tax credit, and a rum tax subsidy  deal for Puerto Rican rum makers.
