Outrageous earmarks in the Omnibus bill

For the record, there are 6,714 earmarks, totaling a whopping $8,313,820,025 in the Omnibus Appropriations Bill.  Yep you heard it--over $8 billion! 

Click here to view the excel spreadsheet listing all of the earmarks including amounts, descriptions, and sponsors.  (The spreadsheet is safe, it's an official listing, no viruses or trojans).

You can also view this info as well as the number of earmarks per sponsor at Jamie Dupree's "Washington Insider" blog .

Beware, it's a long, long list.
