Group exposes 'stimulus' as a Democratic pork bill

The American Issues Project has launched a television ad campaign that highlights the failure of the pork-laden "stimulus" bill to stimulate the economy.

From Ed Martin, the group's president:
"Washington is, once again, out of touch with the American people. Congress has used the anxiety of the American people as a vehicle for appeasing special interest groups and financing their pork projects back home. This type of spending has no place within emergency legislation intended to jump-start the economy."
The ad, which is running on FOX News, CNN, CNN Headline News, CNBC and FOX Business Network, also showcases examples of the billions spent on pork projects -- including golf carts, fish hatcheries and remodeled federal offices -- and targets Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for his claim on the Senate floor that "the American people really don't care" about "porky amendments."
