Chuck Schumer Thinks You Don't Miind "tiny little porky amendments"

Yes, those tiny millions and billions of dollars don't matter to petulant and outre taxpayers like yourself, according to the NY Senator Schumer.

There's that tiny little porky $8 billion for Harry Reid's Railroad from LA to Vegas. How could anyone find fault with a "stimulus" like that one?

Then there's the tiny little porky 1 billion for Prevention & Wellness Programs, including STD education. And blah, blah, blah...and more blah, blah, blah... C'mon, it's only a billion.

And of course, we've got to pay back those people who beat the streets for Barack Obama so there are more billions for "neighborhood organization" groups. Get that "street money" out there right away, just like the old time Boss Tweed Tammany Hall Operators.

The list goes on and on but the most abhorrent thing about it is that the Democratic Congress, plus Specter, Collins, and Snow will try this stuff now with the economy reeling. How can they expect us to swallow this kind of offal? The Stimulus Bill has the kind of bloat one sees from a corpse rotting in the sun on a 100 degree day. It's shameful, especially at a time when we needed a clean stimulus bill.
