The same week that the Supreme Court ruled on the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) and Congress voted to hold U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt, they somehow managed to come to an agreement on a surface transportation bill that determines federal policy and funding for roads and transit systems in this country.
