Promises Made, But Not Kept

#1.  Candidate Obama promised five (5) full days of review (via the web) of any bill before a vote by Congress.
  • In reality, the fat-ladened Stimulus bill was passed without this promised review.
  • #2. Candidate Obama also promised to go 'line by line' and make sure there were no earmarks. Really now? Again, in reality...there were 9,000 (that is nine thousand) earmarks in the Stimulus Bill. Even former Senator turned President Obama had an earmark stuck in the bill. Comments welcomed.
