"Jobs Bill" Porkasaurus

The Hill reports on the ridiculus way the "jobs" bill is acutally being made.

An $80 billion “jobs package” under consideration in the Senate is stimulating a lobbying rush for federal dollars before the administration tries to cap spending.

Transit and high-speed rail advocates, teachers, community bankers, credit unions and business trade groups are seeking spending and tax provisions in the package, which Democrats hope will revive the economy and improve their electoral prospects after a string of defeats at the polls.

Update: I thought I should add a link to this commentary on the porkiness of the new "jobs" bill.
