So I ask... Is spending $32.8 Million in the name of the Kennedy's necessary to run the government?
More than one out of every five dollars of the $126 million Massachusetts is receiving in earmarks from a $410 billion federal spending package is going to help preserve the legacy of the Kennedys.
The bill includes $5.8 million for the planning and design of a building to house a new Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the Senate. The funding may also help support an endowment for the institute.
The bill also includes $22 million to expand facilities at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum and $5 million more for a new gateway to the Boston Harbor Islands on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a park system in downtown Boston named after Kennedy's mother and built on land opened up by the Big Dig highway project.

Isn't that nice? Pete Rose can't get into the Baseball Hall of Fame because of gambling and then lying about it - but Senator Ted the Drunk Kennedy killed a woman, left her to die and lied about it will have an institute built for him with taxpayer dollars. This institute will then serve as a propaganda facility for indoctrinating incoming Democrat senators.
The only thing we should be giving Ted Kennedy is a glass to pour what's left of his grey matter in after his brain cancer gets done with him!
