Payoff? Did Mitch McConnell sell his betrayal of conservatives for a $2 Billion earmark for a Kentucky project?

I am shamed to have ever voted for Mitch McConnell. I won't make that mistake ever again.

Language in a draft of the McConnell-Reid deal (see page 13, section 123) provided to WFPL News shows a provision that increases funding for the massive Olmsted Dam Lock in Louisville from $775 million to nearly $2. 9 billion.
The dam is considered an important project for the state and region in regards to water traffic along the Ohio River.
