    So you thought these blowhards were at an all time low. Packaged together with the mortgage bailout $$$ is this major waste of our money.
    If Bush hasn't done a good enough job of wasting our money ... Harry Reid wants to help him waste more.

    Here's a page showing where the extra money will be spent ...
    Some of it is good ... but the pork is in there for sure.
    By lumping these bills together Harry Reid is working outside
    the voting system that gives our leaders a chance to voice their opinion. I thought Bush was supposed to be the one who acts outside of government?

    All government spending should be cancelled immediately other than that which is Constitutionally called for - defense, interstate highways, etc. All the other stuff can be passed down to the states. Yes, state taxes would go up but the feds would have a huge surplus to pay down the debt and states could only pay for things they really want and need. A museum in Poland ? F*ck you, Harry Reid.

    They're all the same. Can you imagine Obama as president with this crew? Bush/GOP redux. We're so screwed.

    Are you against all of them? You don't think that water safety and pollution at beaches needs to be monitored, and that info should be easily accessible? You're against helping poor kids get eye exams? You're against homes for runaway kids? You're against programs to help victims of torture? You're against new tools for prosecuting child pornographers or for investigating unsolved crimes? You're against advancing broadband services?

    It's amazing how the soundbite "pork barrel spending" has conditioned some people to condemn some perfectly good programs.

    Which ones we're for is irrelevant. If my wife goes out and buys the weekly groceries (which I'm for) and comes back with a $10K statue of, say, Abraham Lincoln then here spending sucked. Same here.

    Again, you can't make bad spending good by adding good spending. Are you in favor of the museum in Poland ?

    I think we should just give everyone a couple zillion trillion dollars and call it a day. Don't you care about people BF? We can just print it, and hand it out. What's the harm in that?
