Bailout Plan part II - The Earmark Come-th

Tubador almost made me lose my lunch...

He outlines the bailout minor adjustments which the Senate hopes will bribe...opps... did I say that out loud. I mean help the House vote for the bill.

Will the new additions releave our ecomonic woo's any better?

Well, you be the judge.

Thanks for the resource Tubador & Capt. Ed

However, the Senate did add a few winners to this new version:

New Tax earmarks in Bailout bill
- Film and Television Productions (Sec. 502)
- Wooden Arrows designed for use by children (Sec. 503)
- 6 page package of earmarks for litigants in the 1989 Exxon Valdez incident, Alaska (Sec. 504)

Tax earmark “extenders” in the bailout bill.

- Virgin Island and Puerto Rican Rum (Section 308)
- Auto Racing Tracks (317)- Wool Research (Sec. 325)


The whole bill and nothing but the bill HERE (hint: use the search feature to lookup Sec. No.)
