The house Bill Revisited

To give you a “taste” of what this pork-laden monstrosity contains, check out this excerpt from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s appearance on CBS.

CBS: Can you honestly say that every program in this plan is solely to stimulate the economy?
Pelosi: (nods) Yes I will.

CBS: How does $335 million in STD [sexually transmitted disease] prevention stimulate the economy?
Pelosi: I’ll tell you how – there is a, uh... I’m a big believer in prevention. And we have, uh – there’s a, uh, part of the bill on the health side of it that is about prevention. It is about, uh, it being less expensive to the states to do these prevention measures...

Okey dokey, Ms. Pelosi. I guess she took the word “stimulate” to mean something else there... hoping folks will loosen up and have a little more fun perhaps?
