What the Senate Should Get Rid Of

There are several wasteful spending programs in the stimulus bill passed by the House yesterday. Here are a few provisions the Senate should consider cutting out of their version (unless they are interested in just shutting down the whole process):

There is also $3 billion for prevention and wellness programs, including $335 million for STD education and prevention, $1 billion for the follow-up to the 2010 Census (not to be spent until April of 2010), $200 million for ATV routes, $200 million for military electric cars, $34 million to renovate the Commerce Department headquarters, and $75 million for an anti-smoking campaign (yes, smokers, your tax dollars hard at work).
