Porked. Teddy K Shrine Has Received $38 Million In Taxpayer Funds

But that isn’t stopping Liveshot Kerry and Chavez Boy Toy, Ed Markey from nosing around for another $30 million.

With $38.3 million in federal earmarks already secured for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, Sen. John F. Kerry and Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Malden) have in recent days tapped the government for $30 million more in the next budget.

The new taxpayer-funded total would cover the full $60 million estimated cost of building the project, adjacent to John F. Kennedy Presidential Library at Columbia Point. And it would put the public on the hook for nearly half the project’s $150 million target.

“If the Kennedy family wants to honor the family they should find a way to fund it themselves,” said David E. Williams of Citizens Against Government Waste, a Washington nonprofit group.

Aren’t you happy that your tax dollars are being spent on a shrine to a man who left a woman to die to save his political career?

Coburn To Dems Who Sold Their Votes: It’s Gonna Be Hell

It’s on.  Coburn was referring to the jobs that several Democrats have been promised by The Liar In Chief in exchange for their votes. 

Coburn makes his own promise to these whores:  Every single penny heading to your district will be scrutinized, publicized and demonized.

What these despicable fools don’t seem to realize is that there will come a day in the not too distant future where they will be the party out of power and their sickening behavoir will come back to bite them in their shady asses.  I, for one, am counting the minutes until we have our day of reckoning.

Healthcare legislation includes billions for jungle gyms and streetlights

They call it an effort to improve the nation’s “health infrastructure.”  I call it pork.  Didn’t someone mention something about lipstick on a pig awhile back?

WASHINGTON – Sweeping healthcare legislation working its way through Congress is more than an effort to provide insurance to millions of Americans without coverage. Tucked within is a provision that could provide billions of dollars for walking paths, streetlights, jungle gyms, and even farmers’ markets.

The add-ons – characterized as part of a broad effort to improve the nation’s health “infrastructure’’ – appear in House and Senate versions of the bill.

Critics argue the provision is a thinly disguised effort to insert pork-barrel spending into a bill that has been widely portrayed to the public as dealing with expanding health coverage and cutting medical costs. A leading critic, Senator Mike Enzi, a Wyoming Republican, ridicules the local projects, asking: “How can Democrats justify the wasteful spending in this bill?’’

But advocates, including Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, defend the proposed spending as a necessary way to promote healthier lives and, in the long run, cut medical costs. “These are not public works grants; they are community transformation grants,’’ said Anthony Coley, a spokesman for Kennedy, chairman of the Senate health committee whose healthcare bill includes the projects.

Pretty soon Queen Nancy will be shrieking from the House floor that this bill is all about JOBS JOBS JOBS JOBS.
