A provision buried inside Congress’ giant spending bill would overturn a federal court order, discard part of environmental law and reject an Indian tribe’s plea, forcing the government to build a bridge in Everglades National Park that a federal judge has declared “a complete waste of taxpayer dollars.”
The project is being opposed by the Miccosukee tribe, and U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro called it an “environmental bridge to nowhere.” She ordered the government in November to comply with federal environmental laws, which would further delay the long-controversial project.
But lawmakers inserted a provision in the 1,123-page omnibus spending bill that is pending in the Senate. It waives those laws and in sweeping language orders the Army Corps of Engineers to begin building the bridge “immediately and without further delay.”
The Washington Times
Sarah Palin was condemn by the liberal left and Obama during the campaign for the ‘Bridge To Nowhere’ and now that Obama is warm inside a 80 degree Oval Office its fine with him to spend our tax money on a bridge in Everglades National Park going nowhere!
Obama’s New Stimulus projects emblem
A White House press release said the emblem “is a symbol of President Obama’s commitment to the American people to invest their tax dollars wisely to put Americans back to work.”
Washington Business Journal
I will try and make a comment if I can quit laughing so hard. After reading about the “Bridge To Nowhere” and then to find out that Obama has a new emblem symbol of President Obama’s commitment to the American people to invest their tax dollars wisely just does not make any sense at all to this tax payer!
