I can think of nothing on this list that I can't live without. This is an excellent start. Obama is clambering for more taxes in order to do this. How ridiculous is that? Without these expenses, the government automatically has more money. What is wrong with the math taught in our schools today? Somehow we manage to teach math to everyone except DemoNcrats. How does that happen? They just refuse to learn.
Reviewed by Marion Dollar 7/18/2011
Read the list carefully and you will see it is very much like the airport Murtha had built in his district which incidently was like the infamous bridge to nowhere. It is just a way for a Senator to siphon taxpayer monies to his state in order to get re-elected or to pay off a favor or debt he owes. It does nothing for the majority of the taxpayers and should be stricken from the books.
Reviewed by Patrick Granfors 7/18/2011
A substantial list indeed, but must be incomplete as the math doesn't quite work. $2.5 trillion over 10 years is $250 Billion per year. This list contains roughly $49 Billion per year. Somebody else is cashing in on $200 Billion per year. Patrick

So confusing that for the first time in my life I want to stick my head in the sand!! I fear that between the Federal Reserve and the President of our failing country, that the people in Washington have gone mad with greed and power and can't find their way out of a paper bag much less the financial woes of our country!

Exchange Programs for Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Their Historical Trading Partners in Massachusetts . $9 million annual savings. What the hell is this anyway…?



To answer your question, Mark...I beleive it's a government program that you can use to exchange Alaskian Native workers for Hawiian Native workers in Massachusetts. Where as, if your Massachusetts seal hunting business is failing due to man made global warming, you can trade your Alaskian Native workers for Hawiian Native workers and start growing Pineaples outdoors in Boston's Parks..



Well the good news is....Thanks to this administration's focused spending on Job creation and Education we now have the best educated unemployed work force in our history.
