Rep. Obey to Sink Omnibus Bill

In Washington.. a massive appropriations bill is in danger. Congress is attempting to pass a budget package that includes 11 unapproved spending bills. The package exceeds the amount President Bush requested for domestic spending. He's threatening a veto. Now.. House Appropriations Chair Dave Obey is threatening to sink the bill himself because he feels the President and congressional republicans are refusing to compromise. Congress hopes to finish business by the end of the week. Obey is not confident that there will be any meaningful spending compromises before the winter recess.
