Former President Clinton getting stimulus funds(Bridge to No-where)

Should taxpayers really being paying for a bridge to no-where for President Clinton's Library?

Apparently they are getting $2.5 million dollars for it.


A historic bridge at Bill Clinton's presidential center in Little Rock is slated to get $2.5 million of federal stimulus money from Arkansas's share of the funds.

Most of the stimulus cash going to states is designated for particular needs, such as Medicaid or schools, but about $8.8 billion distributed through the Government Services Fund is for governors to use as they see fit. Many states have added the bulk of this money to education or police budgets and, in a few cases, initiatives such as tax relief for senior citizens or incentives for the film industry.

Cool, taxpayer will be forced to pay for this "bridge to No-where". Actually, our children's children get to pay for this "bridge to no-where" too!
