A BASIC BREAKDOWN OF THE STIMULUS PACKAGE (in $)

By
Home Builder with CSR

I just briefly skimmed the Stimulus bill that passed the House. These are the numbers that I saw. Some may be a bit off or part of a larger number but you'll get the idea:

$245m - Farm service Agency Salaries

$400m - Watershed Flood Prevention

$$5.8b - Farm & Rural Development Act

$2.8b - Wireless & Broadband Deployment Grant Programs

$1b - climate change research (more to come)

$3b - Edward Byrne memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (?)

$400m - NASA (of which $250m MUST go to climate change research)

$3b - National Science Foundation

$18.5b - Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy

$7.7b - Federal Building Upgrades & Maintenance

$900m Homeland Security

$200m FEMA

$300m Fish & Wildlife

$500m Bureau of Indian Affairs Buildings

$10.8b - EPA

$850m Wildlife Fire Management

$550m Indian Health Facilities

$150m - Smithsonian

$50m - National Endowment for the Arts

$4b - Dept. of Labor

$2.2b Health and Human Services

$1b Administration for Children and Families - Low Income Home Energy Assist.

$13b - Dept. of Education

$3b - HUD

 

This is just a snippet of the hand-outs that I saw. I may have made some errors in my numbers and names, so please do not totally rely on this. Reading through the legalize of the bill is time consuming and cumbersome so I just perused the bill and therefore may have made mistakes. FYI

That is a great grocery list of appropriations, but no stimulus just more spending. Your missing the $355 million for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.

For a supposedly intelligent man, obama is not too intelligent in letting pelosi and reed put this bill together.  So much pork.  Looks more like a pay off to his supporters.
