Since we published the first version of the stimulus back on January 24, Huffington Post readers have spent countless hours combing through its evolving versions to figure out precisely what the taxpayers are being asked to fund. We're asking you to do it one more time. And this time, you have to do it fast. The House is expected to convene at 9:00 Friday to begin debating the bill and vote on it sometime in the afternoon. Then it's on to the Senate.
What we're looking for: anything new that has been injected into this bill. Determining what's new isn't easy, but comparing this version to the Senate and House versions is one way. A better way, with the limited amount of time left, may be to send us anything you find interesting. We've been living and breathing this bill and might be able to tell quickly if it's something new or not.
Tell us about anything that stands out by emailing email@example.com, and we'll publish the best finds.
Specifically, one section of the economic stimulus bill designates nearly a billion dollars for new vaccinations of children. This was discovered by Elisha Celeste, a NaturalNews reader. As stated in the bill:
$954,000,000 shall be used as an additional amount to carry out the immunization program authorized by section 317(a), (j), and (k)(1) of the Public Health Service Act (”section 317 immunization program”)
The issue of whether vaccinations are actually helpful or harmful is hotly debated, of course. The pro-vaccine camp believes that the human immune system is a technological failure and that chemical intervention is the only way to protect children. The anti-vaccine camp believes that exposure to non-fatal infections actually strengthens the immune system, creating stronger protections against future infections. Thus, vaccines actually interfere with normal, healthy immune function while injecting children with dangerous chemicals and substances derived from sick, diseased animals.

"sneaky" projects might be in the bill!
In late-stage talks, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., pressed for $8 billion to construct high-speed rail lines, quadrupling the amount in the bill that passed the Senate on Tuesday.
Reid's office issued a statement noting that a proposed Los Angeles-to-Las Vegas rail might get a big chunk of the money.
