Spendulus raises cost of census by $1,000,000,000

I guess all those ACORN workers need something to do in the election off seasons, eh? (PDF doc, page 37)

...For an additional amount for ‘‘Periodic Censuses and Programs’’, $1,000,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2010

I'm going to update this post as I work my way through this thing page by page.

Page 37 -- $9,000,000,000 for expanding "broadband opportunities"
Page 39 -- $650,000,000 for analog to digital TV boxes
Page 42 -- $1,000,000,000 for more federal prisons
Page 43 -- $1,500,000,000 for more local law enforcement grants

Page 46/47 -- $1,500,000,000 for NASA
Page 47 -- $1,200,000,000 for NSF
Page 61 -- $2,000,000,000 for Army Corps of Engineers projects
Page 68 -- $1,400,000,000 for Colorado river dam fund
Page 70 -- $14,398,000,000 for DOE for "ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY"
Page 75 -- $50,000,000,000 for innovative technology loan guarantees
Page 77 -- $1,000,000,000 for nuclear weapons
Page 80 -- $3,250,000,000 in loans to Western Area Power Authority
Page 84 -- "get out of debt free" loan forgiveness is given to WAPA for loans
Page 93 -- $6,000,000,000 for GSA to convert GSA buildings to "green" buildings
Page 95 -- The $600M for hybrid vehicles everyone has already heard about.

Woo, hoo, on page 97 we actually find something for the little guys -- $615,000,000 for SBA loans!!!

OMG I can't go on...MEGO. And I've been leaving out all the "little" "paltry" $200M "trinkets" like helping out fish farms pay for FishChow.
