I added up the figures of the pork listed here (which isn't even everything), and I came up with 2,848,000 dollars. Taken directly from the pockets of you and me, the American taxpayer.

Is it right for this to be allowed to happen?

It hasn't happened yet and it doesn't have to happen. Contact your congressman NOW. Tell them not to saddle our children with this pork-laden abuse of our tax dollars. Not this bill, vote NO.

Yep, it happened.

Once more proving that money buys Politicians and the average citizen pays for it.

What a Shame.

Ummmmm.....hate to break it to you Einstein but $2,848,000 is CHUMP CHANGE when taken out of a package worth $700,000,000,000 in total. Obviously you did not pass basic math in 4th grade and were passed on for promotion (?) or was it that time you fell off the monkey bars when your were 10 and hit your head? Cheers!

There's a great idea. Let's put the country in deeper debt with a $700 billion dollar bailout of banks and "struggling" homeowners (ie: irresponaible bums) and then lets give tax breaks so even less money is coming into the Treasury. This was pure genuis.

The Democrats controll Congress and this is how they are going to manage our economy???(I hope you all loved that HUGE jump in the DOW today...I believe it DROPPED 157 points AFTER the bill passed!!)...Lambs lead to slaughter...nobody took a step back to think about this? Had to rush this through and then go home to campaign. If it wasn't an election year...would this have happend??

Debt is ok. It is just a negative number.

The greatest part about debt is that you have nothing to lose and when you die...nobody gets anything at all except the chance to write off your debt.

I love debt.
