Well, the Senate has lived down to expectations and rejected a bill to restrict pork spending.
And, the idiocy was not confined to one side of the aisle.
What really burns me is the excuse given by those who opposed it; They'd not be able to meet the needs of their constituency.
News for these Senators, their job is not to meet the needs of their constituency - it is to meet the needs of the NATION.
It is up to the states to meet the needs of their constituencies.
