$410 Billion Spending Bill Propose by House Democrats

House Democrats have purposed another $410 billion in spending in a new bill. The bill has thousands of earmarks which account for nearly $4 billion in the bill. This would be about an eight percent increase in spending over the last fiscal year. (More at http://finance.yahoo.com/news/House-Democrats-propose-410B-apf-14450221.html)

Republicans were apparently not consulted in the construction of the bill (more at http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=30826).

$50 million for United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The UNFPA participates in forced abortion and sterilizations in China as part of the enforcement of their one child policy. (More at http://www.lifenews.com/int1097.html.)
