So I got to wondering how much special interest money is Congress adding to the budgets they are trying to get passed and I came across this website. Has anyone got a line of what the dems are pushing for in these proposed spending packages that they are creating?

2018 Congressional Pig Book

"CAGW Names Kamala Harris 2018 Porker of the Year

Sen. Harris is CAGW's Porker of the Year for for proposing a bill that would subsidize rent with taxpayer dollars."



Introduction

It should come as no surprise that the dam burst on earmarks in fiscal year (FY) 2018. Congress had set the stage for a significant increase in every category of spending when the Bipartisan Budget Act (BBA) of 2018 was approved on February 8, 2018. This legislation obliterated the spending caps set in the 2011 Budget Control Act (BCA) and increased spending by $143 billion, or 13.4 percent, in FY 2018 compared to FY 2017.


Citizens Against Government Waste’s (CAGW) 2018 Congressional Pig Book exposes 232 earmarks in FY 2018, an increase of 42.3 percent from the 163 in FY 2017. The cost of earmarks in FY 2018 is $14.7 billion, an increase of 116.2 percent from the $6.8 billion in FY 2017, or nearly nine times greater than the increase in discretionary spending. The only other time the cost has at least doubled was FYs 1992-1993. Since FY 1991, CAGW has identified 110,861 earmarks costing $344.5 billion.


The $14.7 billion in FY 2018 earmarks is more than half of the record $29 billion in FY 2006. At the rate of increase over FY 2017, earmarks could exceed the FY 2006 figure in two years...... lotz more @ link

It looks like she's still going to be at it while trying to get the feds to keep subsidize and increasing the wealth of California's richest landlords.

Her tweet; We've heard the stories from the government shutdown. Folks standing in food lines, people being threatened with eviction, and those folks, they don't want a wall. They want a paycheck. It is the height of irresponsibility that this Administration is holding them hostage.

From CAGW Names Kamala Harris 2018 Porker of the Year
"The Tax Foundation concluded that Sen. Harris’s plan, “would fail to address the root causes of the high cost of housing. Instead, it would wind up benefiting landlords, not significantly improving the lives of renters, and carrying a hefty price tag.” University of Georgia economics professor Jeffrey Dorfman wrote, “Instead of the Rent Relief Act, we could call it the Landlord Enrichment and Taxpayer Fleecing Act.”


CAGW President Tom Schatz said, “We would like to thank the taxpayers who voted for all of the ‘worthy’ candidates. Senator Harris’s proposal is a prime example of the fiscal foolishness that flourishes in Washington, D.C. and rightly earns her the distinction of 2018 Porker of the Year.”

When Harris was barely 30, she began dating Brown, then in his 60s and speaker of the California Assembly. To be clear, an ambitious woman dating a powerful man is not alone any cause for concern. Strong women are attracted to success, and a 30-year-old assistant district attorney is hardly, say, a 21-year-old intern. But the story doesn't end there.

For one thing, Brown was married at the time. He wound up dumping Harris and returning to his wife as he became mayor. (Again, in the era of President Trump, few will clutch their pearls over this.)

More questionable than the romance is the relationship's apparent effect
on her finances and her career. Brown, according to contemporary news accounts, gifted his then-girlfriend two government jobs with ample salaries — while she was just getting her start as an assistant DA.

As the San Francisco Weekly reported in 2003:

Aside from handing her an expensive BMW, Brown appointed her to two patronage positions in state government that paid handsomely — more than $400,000 over five years. In 1994, she took a six-month leave of absence from her Alameda County job to join the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.
Brown then appointed her to the California Medical Assistance Commission, where she served until 1998, attending two meetings a month for a $99,000 annual salary.

(That's more than $150,000 in current dollars.)

Didn't that despicable, petulant little piece of I-don't-know-what start out in life as a cheap coke hooker? Like so many female liberal whores? Oprah, Maya Angelou, etc.
Quite a post, admitting you are a racist and a misogynist in one fell swoop. I bet you are so proud of that honor; most dirt bags are.

Go to hell, liberal punk. You liberalfilth LOVE to call EVERYTHING you don't like racist and sexist so many thousands of times over, it doesn't mean anything to anyone at all anymore! Your accusations have become automated, petulant background static. I assume YOU are a coke whore yourself if you take this so personally, you cocksucking whore. So why don't you stop bothering me and go spread your butt cheeks for the nearest coke dealer, you submissive little WHORE? It's your only function in life. You coke prostitution whore.
LOL The truth hurts. But thanks for the clarity, it seems you are not only a racist and a misogynist, you're also a homophobic too.

House Dems Reject Three Bipartisan Bills Which Would Pay Federal Workers During Shutdown - Right Side Broadcasting Network

Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise offered his take on the resistance saying, “This is not the first, but the second time in the last week that Democrats have voted against paying our federal workers while we continue negotiating to secure our border and reopen the government.”


House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also weighed in saying, “we are working to get federal employees paid and give Democrats time to negotiate an end to the shutdown.”


Despite his remarks, the majority of House Democrats have refused to vote for the measure.


This comes as two competing bills failed to advance in the Senate on Thursday, which would have reopened the government..........

The fact that people like this can actually run is insane. The Democratic Party HAS to run radical leftists to appeal to the far left, which has taken over the party. No moderate Democrats can run because they don’t even make primaries

The GOP was in control of both houses of Congress at the time, and it no longer needed the Budget Control Act (the "Sequester") to slow growth under Obama. Consequently, it went on a spending spree that someone is trying to blame on a freshman Senator in the minority opposition party. How does that work?

The GOP wants to make it a painless shutdown. That's idiotic. Why should Democrats help make Trump's Shutdown painless? The whole point of a shutdown is pain.

Disregard the ones who are calling you racist, homophobic etc. It just means that you're nailing them from all angles and they are seething with even more hate. You'll notice that they cant refute it so in their insecure mind, they have to resort to smear tactics.

Straight from the democrats playbook- when you have no pertinent retort, accuse the other person as either racist, homophobic or misogynistic. You’re a good little liberal puppet Wry Catcher.

Naw, nothing to do with "smear". The good man is just irate because he never got in a position to benefit from the program. Do cut him some slack already, will you?
I do not find Ms. Harris attractive in the least, not to mention the disease factor. However, she is a smidge better than Hillary, but that's like saying you like Hitler over Stalin because he killed 14,000 less people. LOL!
