Ear Marks

Posted Jan 14 2009 8:36pm
Along with the 700 billion dollar bailout our politicians quietly added the following to the emergency bailout:
Among added projects listed by the Chronicle, were a $2 million tax benefit for makers of wooden arrows for children, a $100 million tax break to benefit auto racetrack owners, $192 million in rebates on excise taxes for the Puerto Rican and Virgin Islands rum industry and $148 million in tax relief for U.S. wool fabric producers.

This is another example of politics as usual...and we paid for it.
