WHY would the Heritage Foundation call the -
"Small Business Lending Fund" a "Slush Fund"?

I looked it up -

Definitions of slush fund on the Web:

* a fund for buying votes or bribing public officials
* Slush fund is a colloquial term which has come to mean an auxiliary monetary account or a reserve fund. However, the term has special meaning within a context of corrupt (including but not limited to) political dealings by governments, large corporations or other bodies and individuals. ...
* Money stored for illegal or dishonest purposes
* A fund (or something similar) that does not have a designated purpose. These types of funds are often illegal.

HOW did YOU expect your readers
to interpret your meaning?
