A Small Request: $48 BILLION for Day Care Center

When I first saw Mike Jenson's report, I wasn't sure this could really be true:
In the midst of a colossal global concern for the economic stability of our great nation, Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri's 5th Congressional District representative, has one small earmark on his wish list that deserves some attention.

Cleaver has listed a new earmark -- one of several -- and he promises to "fight for every one." But this is a whopping $48 billion package that must go down as the grandaddy of all earmarks.
But, it is. Gateway Pundit has uncovered even more information about this earmark:
The $48 billion would go to Cleaver’s friend, a gentleman named Lamar Mickens, president of the not-for-profit Quality Day Campus who runs the organization out of his Kansas City home.


Lamar Mickens is the President and the Treasurer of Quality Day Campus, Inc.
His wife Cynthia is the Vice President of Quality Day Campus, Inc.
Wow. Just wow. I think that's gonna take a point or two off of Congress's historically low approval rating. At 13%, they're rapidly approaching a firm floor!

$48 billion or $48 million? Either way, this is an absolute slap in the face to the American people who overwhelmingly this past November said REDUCE SPENDING!

Slap lest we be slapped.
