Was that a shoe I heard dropping? The billions worth of earmarked funds, (i.e. special interest funds to pay back supporters) that Obama resolutely refused to add to the Stimulus Package, have magically appeared in the new spending bill which is “not” part of the Stimulus Package. Do not look at the man behind the curtain or the 410 Billion dollars and 8,570 earmarks costing 7.7 Billion dollars (see above definition). This is just a normal spending package.
