    Call it President Obama’s Committee for the Re-Election of the President — a political slush fund at the Health and Human Services Department.

    Only this isn’t some little fund from shadowy private sources; this is taxpayer money, redirected to help Obama win another term. A massive amount of it, too — $8.3 billion. Yes, that’s billion, with a B.

    Here is how it works.

    After reading that - I highly encourage everyone to contact their senator and representative(s) and ask for them to investigate this abuse of federal taxpayer funds.

    I believe this president has become nothing more than a common criminal with uncommon opportunity and power.

    I never thought I would live to see this day.:tear:

    Congress passed the bill. Obama only endorsed it.

    Not exactly. Congress passed a bill that could be used for experiments. The HHS secretary -- Kathleen Sebelius, appointed by Obama -- is the one that's twisting the language to call this mis-use of funds an "experiment."

    Not just him; his appointees, too. But then again, he was "raised" in the political arena of Chicago, and this seems to be "the Chicago way."
