they told me there would be no maths in this administration!
Feeling stimulated yet?
63 million voted for ∏eh ∅ne
57 million voted for the Old Maverick
102 million total, which leaves
183 million nonvoters—who still get to pay for this:

$380 million in the Senate bill for the Women, Infants and Children program
$300 million for grants to combat violence against women
$2 billion for federal child-care block grants
$6 billion for university building projects
$15 billion for boosting Pell Grant college scholarships
$4 billion for job-training programs, including $1.2 billion for “youths” up to the age of 24
$1 billion for community-development block grants
$4.2 billion for “neighborhood stabilization activities”
$650 million for digital-TV coupons;
$90 million to educate “vulnerable populations”
But wait! There’s mooooore.....

Allow me to highlight this little nugget: $2,000,000,000 for Army Corps of Engineers projects
The Army Corps of Engineers: those are the fellas who are, thanks to the “Clean Water Act of 2007,” are in charge of every freakin’ drop of water in the US of A. Even that gopher hole that only runs during a downpour—yep. That, too.
Thanks to the removal of one word: “navagable.”
