Talk about pork-barrel spending! California 34 is represented by Democrat Lucille Roybal-Allard. I guess she likes ham. And we’re supposed to believe that government run (er, “single payer”) health care will SAVE us money?
UPDATE: Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsac clarified that the 2 lbs refers to a 2 Lb packages of ham, at about $1.50/lb. As Drudge reports, Food Lion was cheaper (though the flier has “disappeared”).

I would like to go on record:
This is a hoax. Not even the most insane military purchasing practices ($2,000 for a hammer, etc.) came close to this – $1m+ for two pounds of ham. This website must have been hacked, possibly by someone trying to point out all of the pork in this gov’t program, possibly just by a computer geek wag.
