Too Many Czars in the Kitchen?

USA Today leads with a look at how the $410 billion omnibus spending bill contains $227 million for pet projects requested by lawmakers who aren't even in Congress anymore. The New York Times and Washington Post lead with the Obama administration announcing the details of its program to rescue millions of struggling homeowners. The White House said it hopes the two-part plan will help as many as one in nine homeowners. The program received favorable reviews from several large lenders, but others insist it won't do enough to end the ongoing foreclosure crisis.
