    Federal agencies are spending stimulus money at the rate of $196 million an hour. And they will do so every hour for the next eight months until a September 30, 2010, deadline. "When you put that kind of money out the door that fast, there's a possibility of $55 billion dollars of waste, fraud and abuse connected with it," Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said Thursday before a Senate Finance Committee hearing examining the lack of oversight in the $878 billion dollar economic stimulus bill passed a year ago.

    Senate Omnibus Funds Planned Parenthood, UNFPA, Ditches Abstinence Washington, DC -- The omnibus spending bill the Senate will consider this weekend could pave the way for funding abortions in the nation's capital for the first time in 13 years. There are other winners and losers in the legislation -- with Planned Parenthood and the UNFPA dining at the Congressional trough. http://www.lifenews.com/nat5768.html
  • What happened to $634B Obama put in Omnibus as "down payment" on health care?

    Washington Post ^ | 8/11/09 | timeout
    In March Obama proposed $634 Billion in his budget as a "down payment" or "reserve" for health care reform. I don't recall if it made it to the final bill. I do know Congress rejected his proposal to offset it by eliminating charitable deductions for high earners. So maybe it got tossed altogether. If it's in the Omnibus Budget, how does that work? Is that money included in the spending side of the health care bill?

    They have taken a pledge of loyalty to Obama, and they say they are coming your way tomorrow for yours. Organizing for America, the Obama-for-President campaign morphed into Obama-for-Maximum-Leader army, will hit the streets for their "Pledge Project Canvass," knocking on doors and accosting folks in parking lots and sidewalks to ask them to sign a pledge to support Obama's policies for health care, energy and education reform. Organizing for America, a project of the Democratic National Committee, is variously described in the media as [President Obama's] "own version of a lobbying firm", "a parallel organization to the Democratic National Committee" and...

    Reid, Pelosi in omnibus swearing match By: David Rogers March 5, 2009 07:58 PM EST After an angry, swearing late night meeting among top Democrats, Congress voted Friday to give itself another five days to try to complete a long-overdue omnibus spending bill that had become a growing embarrassment for party leaders and President Barack Obama. Senate Democrats had abruptly pulled back Thursday night after finding themselves one vote short of the 60 needed to cut off debate. The action infuriated Speaker Nancy Pelosi so much that the California Democrat wanted to abandon the $409.6 billion measure and instead push...
  • More Stimulus Bill Pork and Earmarks in Proposed Legislation

    If any of you managed to supress your gag reflex long enough to listen to President Obama's speech last night, you might have heard him talk about ruling out adding pet spending projects to budget legislation. Why then, is the first major bill penned under his presidency chopped full of 9,246 of those projects? Why then is the proposed budget full of 770 pages of earmarks? Why then is the omnibus legislation full of earmarks? And the worst part? It's not all the democrats, there are even a few RINO's adding to the pot. In addition to the basic operations...
