+ - Obama: thank you Mitch McConnell - here is $2million for your hometown DAM 1

Submitted by realized
realized writes: The bill that ended the government shutdown and forestalled a debt crisis Wednesday night had at its core what the country expected: it funded the government and averted default. But that was not all.

In exchange for raising the debt limit, Mitch McConnell also got 2.1 billion in extra funding for his hometown dam project.

Though Mitch secured 2.1 billion for helping Obamacare and rising the limit, others also benefited though not as much. $450 million in Colorado flood relief and $600 million to fight forest fires was also passed as part of the bill.
