Earmarks

Todays usa today reports that despite obama’s pledge to reduce earmarks to below $7.8b (where they were before bush), they will still hit $19b.

They include F22 jets the pentagon doesn’t want!

$2m for a bike path in spokane.

$600k for the wild turkey federation, a turkey hunting group.

Apparently, obama may now not want to stand up to fellow law makers as he needs their support to pass his healthcare bill.

Guess the dream of a president who will veto earmarked spending bills is still one for movies. Where’s dave?

  1. Collecting his Nobel Peace Prize? Oh no, wait, that’s the real President, not the fictitious one!
    Missed you this week at the USV meeting…hope all is well.

  2. Billing is messed up on Yoville one of Zynga’s many games. I enjoy the game have bought Yocash once, and since then have been unable to buy more. The billing went thou, the payment was made, there where no delays on my part. Just thought you would like to know that something is wrong with the system that’s being used for payment.
