Perino: Congress Can Even Screw Up Spending The Taxpayers' Money Unwisely

After a clerical error has left both Congress and the White House unsure of exactly what farm bill got vetoed, White House spokesman Dana Perino mocked Capitol Hill leaders saying Congress "can even screw up spending the taxpayers' money unwisely."

The error left out Title 3 of the bill when it was sent to White House resulted in President Bush vetoing an incomplete version of the farm bill.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md) has said the likely solution is to renumber the approved farm bill and then redo the whole process, with Bush vetoing and then the House and Senate voting to override.

Perino said the error will hopefully give lawmakers time to reconsider "how much they're asking the taxpayers to spend at a time of record farm income."
