» Pork Report, January 12 2009 – Big Government

Your Tax Dollars At Work!  $884 TARP,   $873 Obama’s Stimulus Bill.  And remember as the banks repay the TARP money it has become a Geithner controlled slush fund for Obamanation.  The Stimulus Bill has stimulated nothing and that that has already been spent has been wasted.  or rather, the funds that are trackable has been found to have been wasted.  Much that has gone out simply can not be accounted for.  The same goes for the TARP funds.  This kind of accountability however is par for the course with all government run programs.
