Just one example - after working out a "deal" with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's home state of Kentucky will receive $2.9 BILLION, (that's million with a 'B')for an ongoing dam project that would have been halted without more funding. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/16/mitch-mcconnell-budget-deal_n_4111387.html
