Yep there is something wrong, it was over $700 million total.
Actually, since most of that money was spent in ways that provided jobs and otherwise helped stimulate the economy... It stands, so far, as one REAL thing Obama has done to stimulate the economy. Though it is only a fraction of the trillion dollar government stimulus he signed as president, his campaign funds seem to have done more to help the economy than that massive stimulus plan has.
So, I suppose its a good thing.

2) shut down the fedaral agency's not allowed in the constitution.
3) shut down the social engineering role of the tax code .
boom , end of problem

they will promise to stop tax's and sstop spending..
what ever else they do is not important...
