Mitch McConnell Accused of Sneaking in $2 Billion ‘Kentucky Kickback’ in Budget, Debt Limit Deal
Well, the Republicans caved in and ran away with their tails between their legs over the budget negotiations. The stupid idiots allowed the Continuing Resolution debate to be combined with the Debt ceiling debate...morons.
But thats not the reason I posted this. It looks like McConnell's home state is getting a special present out of all this.
A damn project that was slated to get $775,000,000 of Federal monies somehow got bumped to $2,918,000,000.
No wonder McConnell was so gung ho to pass the deal...screw our budget, Kentucky is getting $3 Billion for a project originally slated to get $775 Million. I wonder if the Contracting company that is building the damn is any kin, friend or large campaign donor of McConnell's.
And we wonder why the country is in the economic shape it is in.
