The Fix at WaPo: Lautenberg injects some truth in bill naming

Hat tip to Mikevotes for pointing this out: "Lautenberg filed an amendment to change the official name of the 'Deficit Reduction Omnibus Reconciliation Act 2005' to the 'Moral Disaster of Monumental Proportion Reconciliation Act.'"

I'm one who's certainly disgusted by the Bush Administration method of spin, naming the environment-gutting act the "Clean Skies Initiative" et al. Lautenberg says the bill would "close the door of opportunity and cut critical services to the poor, elderly, sick and hungry." But that's never stopped the GOP before.
