President Obama Breaks another Promise: New Fiscal Cliff Bill LOADED with PORK

Ah.....yes.....and who can forget then Sen Barack Obama back in 2008, when he promised that no last minute pork would ever slip into any bill he would sign as President:

Hahahaha..."Who can forget?" I asked, well I guess President Obama can:
The "fiscal cliff" legislation passed this week included $76 billion in special-interest tax credits for the likes of General Electric, Hollywood and even Captain Morgan. But these subsidies weren't the fruit of eleventh-hour lobbying conducted on the cliff's edge -- they were crafted back in August in a Senate committee, and they sat dormant until the White House reportedly insisted on them this week.
The Family and Business Tax Cut Certainty Act of 2012, which passed through the Senate Finance Committee in August, was copied and pasted into the fiscal cliff legislation, yielding a victory for biotech companies, wind-turbine-makers, biodiesel producers, film studios -- and their lobbyists. So, if you're wondering how algae subsidies became part of a must-pass package to avert the dreaded fiscal cliff, credit the Biotechnology Industry Organization's lobbying last summer.

I mean Geesh....They had 3 minutes to read the bill...what more do they need?

This man is teflon. There is nothing he can do, no lie, no broken promise, no outrageous action or gross negligence that will bring him down. Look at his approval. This country is seriously crazy.

Any other calls to my house for contributions to stop the liberals, will be met with: "If this is a fund to hire snipers to stop the madness, I'm in."
