Introduction

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) released a report yesterday morning highlighting "100 examples of questionable stimulus projects." By the afternoon, the White House had responded with a point-by-point rebuttal.

Coburn ranked the top ten most wasteful projects, totaling $5.5 billion in federal government spending, and then listed the following 90 by region -- purposefully similar to the stimulus status report released by Vice President Biden 100 days into the Obama administration, which touted the projects it helped fund around the country.

Yesterday, the White House criticized the conservative senator's report and flatly denied all but a few claims of waste.

Click through to see the top 10 projects on Coburn's list and the White House response to each one.
