Constitutional Abuses of Power

It’s always a hoot to watch Harry Reid whine. Take, for example, his complaining about the House attaching ANWR drilling to the Defense appropriations bill:

“This abuse of power will have long-term ramifications in this body, and is as bad or worse than anything ever attempted before, including the nuclear option,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, comparing the inclusion of ANWR on the defense spending bill to threatened efforts to prevent Democrats from using the filibuster option on the president’s judicial nominees.

How’s that for a good sense of proportion? The House amended a bill, passed it, and sent it to the Senate for approval. I remember seeing this somewhere before… Oh, right, in Article I, Section 7.
