Congress was on track to weigh a bill that would authorize having a flag presented to the families of federal workers killed on the job. But that bill is stalled as the American Legion and some right wing bloggers are opposing it, saying, among other things, that it would dilute the symbolism of presenting a flag to military members killed in action.
Are you surprised it’s become so controversial? Read my blog post and see what the twitterverse response has been here and Joe Davidson’s Federal Diary column, which contains more details about the bill and the opposition to it, here.
Also, post thoughts on Twitter using #FedFlags.
