Omni-pork lives! Senate protects $7.7 billion worth of earmarks

President Obama can breathe a sigh of relief. The Senate just voted to keep all those earmarks that don’t exist in the $410 billion spending bill.

GOP Sen. John McCain’s amendment stripping the omni-pork package of an estimated 8,500 pet projects worth roughly $8 billion was defeated this afternoon. You can find a database of all those teeny, tiny pork projects here.

Here’s the roll call vote:

God save us from bipartisanship.

Allah’s got the vid of McCain on the Senate floor.

Via GOP Senate staffer Tom Jones, here’s the earmark pork map for the Commerce/Justice/State Omni-pork bill — and here’s the one for Energy and Water.


Wonder where all the porkulus money that’s already been approved is going? Tabitha Hale is watching.
