"Mr. Obama promises he won't let the special interests gobble up these funds meant for the public good, and maybe he won't, and maybe, too, he will reverse other forces of nature, such as the rotation of the Earth.
Note that the nation's mayors already have thousands of ideas they wish to share with Mr. Obama, and that fast on their heels are governors, environmental groups, business lobbies and others who figure a billion here and a billion there and soon enough their causes are sitting pretty."
Pork, pork and more pork! There is more pork here than in of one of those "Noche Buena" dinners that my Cuban parents hosted at our household! At least, my parents called it pork. They didn't call it a "low fat dinner"!

Again there is a better way!

Stand up Republicans.
