President Signs $410B Spending Package

Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings

President Obama signed a $410 billion spending package Wednesday that includes billions in earmarks like the ones he promised to reign in during his campaign.

He acknowledged the bill was "imperfect," and insisted it must signal an "end to the old way of doing business." He vows to work with Congress to end the abuse of earmarks.

The massive measure funds federal agencies through the fall and contains nearly 8,000 pet projects, known as earmarks and denounced by critics as pork.
