The defense bill that just passed the House of Representatives includes a back-door fund that lets individual members of Congress funnel millions of dollars into projects of their choosing.

cnn.com

Congressional leaders are trying to unearth a legislative pathway that would raise the country's debt ceiling and now this?

Probably just black ops military projects so diabolical and senseless waste of taxpayer dollars that if they told anyone they'd get arrested so all in all it is much better all around that we don't know. Nice name.

They gonna say: We cant disclose what those projects are, due to national security.
When you look at it, it all make sense.

Right now, theres definitely a group of folks who want the US of A to go rock bottom.
Just look around with all the manifestations. That wont help for economic stability.
