Default Democrats spending your money to buy votes

It would seem that the lose interest in balancing the budget when they need to buy votes for favorite legislation. Aren't you glad to know that 21 BILLION of our tax dollars are being spent to get our representative to vote against our President? And why are no news agencies talking about it? This one article in Washington Post is all I could find.

seems to remind me of a bridge... seems it went somewhere, somewhere very simple and plain... can't remember the name of the bridge, but it did have a catchy title.

Considering that equals roughly 20 days of running the Iraq war then I don't see it as all that much in the efforts to end the war.

It comes to about 64 days based on the numbers I've found (http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...top_world_news) (sorry, just noticed that is a year old article, will look for more recent source)

Not that it matters, It's still buying votes and I think it's a disgusting display of pork barrel spending.
