Finally something the Government can do for my husband. He has had a mustache for years. This is too much. I'm telling you they lay awake nights looking for more freebies for the unfortunate.

No, we will not apply for the $250. We will just figure out how to pay $250. less in taxes next year.

Is there any end to these idiots and their pork barrel spending? For once I will say both parties are way out of touch with Americans.Time to clean out everyone in office,both Dems and Rep.

I agree. Neither party has an edge on stupidity. But the changes have to come from the top down. All of them.

Read the story.

And its about as worthless as spending money to have a vote to call "French Fries", "Freedom Fries".

And as far as freebie goes, I'd rather take care of the less privileged then spending 4 billion in subsidies to Big Oil. Why do we need to give oil companies who are seeing record level profits a tax subsidy.

But then that's the difference in repub philosophy vs dem. They both spend, its just what they spend it on.

Imagine where we'd be if Bush didn't blow Clinton's surplus on unpaid for nation-building in Iraq.. We spent way more protecting Iraq's borders, while our borders got a fraction of the spending.

Think how far we could go with the trillions of dollars Obama spent on green companies, 11 of which went belly up. Or how far we could go with the money we spent on the Volt, that giant cigarette lighter. I would rather invest in companies that hire workers who pay taxes, and increase revenue then spend money on 4 generations of people who will never amount to anything. We have ruined their lives, never showing them how to achieve, just pushing them into one addiction after another. And all because we need them subservient for votes. That is the worst cruelity of all. Tell me Daddy Government made them happy.

Yea, all that money could have gone to free birth control.
