CNN’s Moody Mocks New Government Spending Bill

“Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.” -Otto von Bismarck,

When discussing the 2015 Government Spending Bill, the old adage, made famous by the Prussian statesman, seems as applicable today as it was over a century ago. CNN senior digital correspondent, Chris Moody sifted through the grotesque innards of the new bill today in a CNN Digital video.

In the clip, he points out several of the more putrid aspects slipped into the 1,600 page bill — from Congress blocking the vote to legalize marijuana in DC, to the fact that “it lets school districts avoid nutrition guidelines that would lower the amount of sodium in children’s school lunches. Because that would be tyranny.”

Moody even trolled the bill on Twitter, comically tweeting at Senator Ted Cruz, “Hey @tedcruz, why didn’t you make sure farmers are protected from Chupacabra attacks in the spending bill?”
