Vice President Biden Says "No Swimming Pools"
Today Vice President Biden defended the stimulus package at the White House Conference by saying that :
'the administration would keep stimulus spending on a tight leash to prevent waste, fraud, and abuse' Link
He went on to be quoted saying, to prove spending will not be frivolous, that there will be "no swimming pools in this money". Now its obvious that building pools would not directly stimulate the economy, but as far as mentioning pools specifically as something that the administration is not concerned about, I do feel a little offended. Biden, what's your beef with swimming pools?
