What 9,286 Earmarks Look Like – Video

From Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price, via YouTube:

Chairman Price shows America what 9,286 Earmarks Look Like

Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) goes through the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations bill, a pork-stuffed spendfest with over 9,000 earmarks that comes in at just under half a billion dollars.

These earmarks were dropped into the final text of the half trillion dollar appropriations bill at the last moment by the Democrats to minimize public scrutiny. 

So Rep. Price is showing us what Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid didn’t want us to see.

What 9,286 earmarks look like.

    So .. who was it that made those really cool “earmark erasers”???

    I’m thinkin’ Smith & _________ somethin’?!?!? Smith & Barney? No. Hmmm. I’m havin’ a hard time recalling just now; but I’m thinkin’ we need to get our hands on some.

    If the GOP has any chance to re-capture the country, we need more youtube videos like this. Not entirely sure that this is possible, given the tax eaters outnumber the tax payers, but it’s a start.

    Exposing this stuff is part of a good start.

    But I keep thinking, if only the GOP had actually done something about it when they were in charge of congress, then maybe they would still be in charge!!!

    A lot of people will say, “that’s in the past, don’t dwell on it”. But until the GOP formally addresses it buy dumping all the old leadership and publicly opposing every socialist move by the dems and the current administration, they will stay the minority party.

    OBAMA: For those who still doubt the wisdom of our recovery plan, I ask them to talk to the teachers who are still able to teach our children because we passed this plan. I asked them to talk to the nurses who are still able to care for our sick and the firefighters and first responders who are still able to keep our communities safe. I ask them to come to Ohio and meet the 25 men and women who will s-s-soon be protecting the streets of Columbus because we passed this plan.

    I am so glad that the earmark stimulus bill, will keep funding this non-money-generating jobs like teachers and firefighters. And I can’t even count how many times I have been offered a job by a nurse…….good job Obama….why to think outside the box…..way outside. . .
