This just in.

Officials put the cost of the measure at $780 billion in tax cuts and new spending combined. No details were immediately available, and there appeared to be some confusion among senators about the price tag. :icon_bs:
Perfect.

Let Pelosi do the math...I'm sure she could figure it out.

BTW, what has the Federal response to the ice storm situation in Kentucky been?

Good point! But I think we all know that Obama is going to get a pass on anything.

according to the AP and state officials in Kentucky, it's been good

In the first real test of the Obama administration's ability to respond to a disaster, Kentucky officials are giving the federal government good marks for its response to a deadly ice storm.

Beshear asked Obama for a disaster declaration to free up federal assistance Thursday, two days after the storm hit, and Obama issued it hours later. Trucks loaded with supplies began arriving at a staging area at Fort Campbell, Ky., on Friday morning, said Mary Hudak, a spokeswoman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

On Saturday, Beshear ordered all of the state's Army National Guardsmen into action to distribute supplies, many of which came from FEMA.

Beshear has consistently praised Obama, a fellow Democrat, for the attention he's devoted to what Beshear calls the biggest natural disaster to hit his state.

"We have had tremendous and quick response from President Obama and his administration," Beshear said Monday. "I don't think any of our folks that have dealt with disasters before ever recall as quick a response as we got last Wednesday."

As well he should. Not only did he break his own "ethics" code by appointing lobbyist into positions around him, he has pretty brazenly attempted to appoint individuals who cheated on thier taxes (we won't even get into Self's attempted appointment).
