Obama to Double 2012 Conservation Spending?

Spending money is what Obama does best. Even when either side of the isle can’t agree on a budget, Obama wants to spend, spend, spend.

President Obama says he’s constantly telling his two daughters to turn off the television, stop using Skype and go outside. He wants to get more American kids off the couch and out the door, reconnecting with the world and its natural beauty.

And he wants to make it easier for Americans to use parks and public lands, saying that too many “can go days without stepping on a single blade of grass.”

Toward that end, the president wants Congress to double spending — to $900 million next year — on a conservation fund that’s used to buy more property for the federal government. Currently, the government owns 635 million acres, or roughly three out of every 10 acres, with the largest chunk in Alaska.

  1. Obama wants to double the spending…..it never ends with democrats constantly wanting to spend more and more on things that mean nothing to the taxpayers.

    Good article!! Thanks!

  2. That’s right! He wants to spend more. Shocking isn’t it? But there is something underlying here, and the reason being: it takes away land that could be used to decrease our dependence on foreign oil.
