Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsac was quick to point out:
“Press reports suggesting that the Recovery Act spent $1.19 million to buy ‘2 pounds of ham’ are wrong. In fact, the contract in question purchased 760,000 pounds of ham for $1.191m, at a cost of approximately $1.50 per pound.”
Well doesn't that just put your mind at ease? What a nice man. What concern. [/sarcasm off]
I am hoping and praying with every fiber of my soul that this administration will be held accountable for every wasted dime!
