A bill was just introduced in the Senate, S.252, called the Prematurity Research Expansion and Education for Mothers who deliver Infants Early Reauthorization Act. Still trying to find authorization for it somewhere in my copy of the Constitution. Yet, it is certainly likely to pass. Now, this is a rather insignificant bill that the CBO estimates will cost "only" $4 million in 2014 and $42 million over the 2014-2018 period. But it illustrates the complete and utter disregard that Congress (Democrats and Republicans) has for the Constitution and for controlling spending.
