My What a Large Earmark You Have Congressman!

From WashingtonWatch:

The Epicenter

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (MO-5) requests $48,000,000,000 for:
Quality Day Campus, Inc.
3943 Paseo Boulevard
Kansas City, MO 64110
(show me on a map)


Quality Day Campus, Inc. 3943 Paseo Boulevard, KCMO, 64110 Epicenter
Kansas City 48,000,000,000
The Epicenter (E-Center) is a proposed / estimated / $48
billion dollar-(Phase One) mass /scale / urban
reclamation project for combating, reducing, reversing
and or eliminating poverty within underserved
communities--by utilizing mass / scale economic
redevelopment to bring about stability and self reliance.

$48 Billion. Phase one. Day care center?
I am obviously not thinking big enough.
