This afternoon the U.S. Senate, during their consideration of the economic recovery bill, approved an amendment offered by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) that stated "None of the amounts appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used for any casino or other gambling establishment, aquarium, zoo, golf course, swimming pool, stadium, community park, museum, theater, art center, and highway beautification project." The amendment passed by a wide vote margin of 73-24.

How do you link casinos with zoos and museums???

Pathetic. I'm surprised so many dems went along with it. I get the gambling part but why the rest?
