    ...This bill is redundant, expense and wasteful. It would authorize $5 billion for various energy retrofit projects, an enterprise the government has little business subsidizing – if these loans were profitable to make, private industry would be making them. Other areas of concern we have with the bill are: The bill is duplicative because there are already many government projects that are supposed to fund energy efficient projectsThe stimulus bill allotted $4.7 billion for weatherization and only $368 million of that has been spent for that purpose after one year, due mainly to illegitimate and inefficient use of the moneyIn...

    The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul. Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.
