The 111th's Christmas gift to America

Before the most woeful, inept and sorry excuse for a Congress in modern history officially ends business and leaves town for the holidays, let's take a look at the big steaming pile of an omnibus bill that's under the tree and which they are trying to get passed and put on the President's desk.

By the numbers:

1,924: number of pages in said spending bill.

1.2 Trillion: The dollar amount of the spending bill.

11: The number of months Congress had to work on it before it became such an emergency and something everyone has to vote yes on or else face certain disaster.

1.1 Billion: The dollar amount tabbed to start cranking up ObamaCare.

6,630: The number of earmarks in this bill.

8 Billion: The dollar figure for those earmarks.

0: The chances the President who claimed just a few days ago that one of the lessons he learned from the 2010 midterms was to take more seriously the public's disapproval of - and his pledge - to oppose earmarks, will veto the bill.

And to put a nice big red bow on things, let's take a look at how they've done over the past two years when they've had control of both chambers and the Oval Office.

Good riddance.
