Where were you when this slush fund was being set up? Quite a setup.
How about CBS, with their Obama talking points at the end:
The Obama administration has said that cracking down on waste, fraud and abuse of tax dollars is a priority.I guess, like--now ousted--Dem Speaker Nancy Pelosi, they felt Congress needed to pass the bill before we found out what was in it.
Look, we know cracking down on waste, fraud and abuse is too much to expect of this administration--it defines it. Especially the abuse part.
All we ask is a priority on JOBS. Meanwhile we're still going broke. What are the Dems up to these days?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) gently mocked Senate Democrats on Tuesday for so far failing to produce a fiscal year 2012 spending plan.
“They [Democrats] say they prefer the ideas the President outlined in a speech he gave last month,” McConnell said.
“Well, unfortunately we can't vote on a speech ... but if that's what it takes to get Democrats engaged in this debate, maybe we should revisit the rules so we can actually vote on a speech,” said McConnell.
McConnell was referring to a address Obama made last month in which he laid out his vision for reducing the budget deficit by $4 trillion over the next 12 years.
“More than two years have passed since Democrats have produced a budget of their own,” McConnell pointed out.And our President is off somewhere. Momentarily in between speeches. Looking around for Waste and Fraud I presume.
