Obama breaks promise on pork spending

According to the AP:

Despite campaign promises to take a machete to lawmakers' pet projects, President Barack Obama is quietly caving to funding nearly 8,000 of them this year, drawing a stern rebuke Monday from his Republican challenger in last fall's election.

Arizona Sen. John McCain said it is "insulting to the American people" for Obama's budget director to indicate over the weekend that the president will sign a $410 billion spending bill with what Republicans critics say is nearly $5.5 billion in pet projects known as earmarks.

How many rational people actually expected BHO to keep his campaign promises. As he so clearly said, "We won." So expect a far left extremist agenda shoved down your throat regardless of what you want.
