    Did you read your CDL / HazMat manual before taking the test ?

    If they can't, or won't do their job, then why are we paying them ?

    Because nobody votes them out or runs against them... and they only care about their career pensions and benefits...if people were smart they would demand term limits and not give pensions for 4 year service if that was the number we came up with.

    Yes, I do think this amendment would have gotten some traction if presented as a stand alone bill. The proof is
    the fact that they tacked it on as an amendment, because they knew it would not stand alone.
    It would not stand alone because it was not about Teamster pensions, but screwed all the MEPFs.

    You are correct. "We must pass this bill to know what's in it". Nancy Pelosi.
    If not the dumbest statement ever made by a politician, at least in the top ten.
