I thought you all might remember how well ACORN did in registering dems in all of our neighborhoods and see how Obama is rewarding them with more than Four Billion of our tax dollars.
The U. S. Senate has not yet voted on this bill, and a number of additional "pork" (more spending) items are being added to it. As a result, the House of Representatives will have to vote on the bill again!
HR 1 is the largest pork barrel bill in the history of our great country. President Obama claims that we can spend our way out of debt! It's never worked before, and it won't work this time!
Here's what your taxes will be paying for if this bill passes:
There's billions for the radical environmentalists' agenda:
* $20 million "for the removal of small- to medium-sized fish passage barriers"
* $70 million to "Support Supercomputing Activities" for climate research
* $10 million for biking and walking trails
* $200 million for plug-in car stations
* $400 million for NASA to conduct research on climate change
* $600 million for diesel emission reduction
* $650 million for "alternative energy technologies, energy efficiency enhancements and deferred maintenance at Federal facilities"
* $1.5 billion to build "green schools"
* $2.4 billion for "carbon capture demonstration projects"— WHATEVER THAT MEANS!
There's billions for federal bureaucrats:
* $600 million to buy new cars for government workers— THIS IS ON TOP OF THE $3 BILLION PER YEAR THAT THE GOVERNMENT ALREADY SPENDS ON ITS FLEET OF VEHICLES.
* $150 billion to more than double the budget of the U. S. Department of Education— THIS MEANS MORE FEDERAL CON TROL OF OUR CHILDREN AND OUR LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS
* $34 million to remodel the Department of Commerce HQ
* $50 million for the National Endowment of the Arts— REMEMBER HOW WE THE TAXPAYERS HAVE PAID FOR A PAINTING OF CHRIST IN A VAT OF URINE, AND FOR SEXUAL ORGANS PAINTED TO LOOK LIKE HUMAN FACES?
* $54 million for federal programs that our government has criticized as "ineffective" or that cannot pass basic financial audits—PAYING TO CONTINUE PROGRAMS THAT DON'T WORK!
* $462 million for equipment, construction, and renovation of facilities at the Center for Disease Control
* $1 billion for follow-up to the 2010 Census
* $1 billion for AMTRAK
There's billions in political payoffs:
* $246 million for Hollywood -- MOVIE MOGULS RAISED MILLIONS FOR THE OBAMA PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
* $83 billion for tax credits for people who don't pay taxes
* $4.19 billion to ACORN, THE OBAMA SUPPORT GROUP THAT IS
