Democrats in Congress are moving to give domestic government agencies 8 percent MORE money, on average, to spend this year atop the whopping $787 billion in economic stimulus funds...
Taxpayers for Common Sense, a budget watchdog group, counted 8,570 pet projects totaling $7.7 billion inserted into the bill by lawmakers...
*$22 million for an addition for the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library
*10 percent increase for the money-losing Amtrak passenger rail system.
*Congress also awarded itself a 10 percent increase in its own budget, bringing it to $4.4 billion.
The bill is H.R. 1105.
SO, yet another Bill coming up for vote (Thursday) that is full of Pork. Who thinks Obama will keep his word and veto it?
