9,000 Earmarks in the "NO" earmarks spending Bill


Hill staffer Tom Jones is going through the omnibus spending bill with a fine-tooth comb, and Twittering his earmark findings, here are a few:

* $200,000 for “Tattoo Removal Violence Prevention Outreach Program,” pg. 283;

*Maine lobster earmark in the omnibus, pg. 173;

*$5.8 million earmark for the “Ted Kennedy Institute for the Senate…for the planning and design of a building & an endowment,” pg. 232;

*and National Council of La Raza, $473,000 earmark from Sens. Bingaman and Menendez, pg. 212.

I will find and post more.

Everywhere there's lots of piggys
living piggy lives.
You can see them out for dinner
with their piggy wives.
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon. - Lennon & McCartney
