FILE - This Jan. 25, 1988 file photo shows President Ronald Reagan holding up 14-pound continuing resolution for the budget, part of a total package weighing 43-pounds, which the president said was two months late from Congress, during his State of the Union address on Capitol Hill in Washington on January 25, 1988. Vice President George H.W. Bush, left, and House Speaker James Wright of Texas listen behind him. Last week’s 1,582-page bill was really 12 bills wrapped into one, negotiated in the back rooms of the Capitol by a relative handful of people and presented to the House and Senate as an unamendable, take-it-or-leave-it proposition.
