Yes Sir grey I bet you know all about being racist,I't really must suk for you knowing that the shoe can now be on the other foot, but Hispanics are not like you.Anyway thats not what I'm responding too,(NCLR) NATIONAL COUNCIL OF LA RAZA works to improve opportunities For Hispanic American's not illegals thats a whole diffrent topic. Other Latino organizations should of gotten earmarks too.$950.000 almost seems like chump change compared to the 70 billion stolen by AIG and gang. This is a refresher for you /When Congress does not or cannot produce separate bills in a timely fashion (by the beginning of the fiscal year on October 1), it will roll many of the separate appropriations bills into one omnibus spending bill. Some of the reasons that Congress might not complete all the separate bills include partisan disagreement, disagreement amongst members of the same political party, and too much work on other bills.
Often, omnibus spending bills are criticized for being full of pork (unnecessary/wasteful spending that pleases constituents). The bills regularly stretch to more than 1,000 pages long and often have not even been read in full by the people voting for them. Nevertheless, such bills have grown more common in recent years.
In 2009, a proposed $410 billion dollar omnibus bill (H.R. 1105) became a point of controversy due to its $8 billion in earmarks. On March 11, the bill was signed by the President.
