This is great. The Federal government is by definition bankrupt but we keep giving away money.

So Treasury is giving to the richest, most liberal states while poor people suffer? Makes sense to me if you know what drives Obama and liberals in general.

And .... the Treasury Dept has such a lovely little discretionary fund because why????? And such funds come from where and whom, exacty? Throwing the taxpayer's money away with one hand and then wiping crocodile tears away with the other hand, crying that they are broke. Sheesh, more proof that government shut-downs and department audits are sorely needed.

Free money from the feds! Problem is that it is our money we sent to Washington and they returned a portion of it to special interest groups. Business as usual!
