    sigh, if you read the entire article it's pretty clear that the money goes to those that ask for it the loudest...just as it has for decades.

    But don't let facts slow you down.

    Or that Sanford had to be forced by his state to take the stimulus money. Or that many GOP governors are using the stimulus money to pay off debts, instead of its intended purpose.

    OMG, politicians earmarking money for political purposes. What have we come too.

    Those darn liberals. Something like this wouldn't happen in a republican administration!

    That's not a fact. That's non-relevant mumbling by Ravtard.

    The fact is that the money is going to Obama supporters.

    "Billions of dollars in federal aid delivered directly to the local level to help revive the economy have gone overwhelmingly to places that supported President Obama in last year's presidential election."

    Of course it does, the 'stimulous' was always a long desired political wish list of pet democratic projects.

    Obviously the money goes to those causes.

    Well he did win by a great amount electoral votes wise. So it's no surprise that more money would go to places that he won in since there's more area that he won in than McCain.

    Also, cities need the federal aid more then rural areas and Obama won urban areas by a good margin. This is not a conspiracy, it's called common sense.
