You Tax Dollars at Work

I don't like to cover politics at all, but here are your current tax dollars at work (from Politico).

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), in fact, put out a press release late last night declaring Thursday as "our $12 billion day." Indeed, Louisiana received $3 billion in home reconstruction aid that was dropped into the Defense spending bill late in negotiations. That bill cleared the Senate on Thursday. Louisiana will receive $7 billion of the $23 billion water resources development act money thanks to the resounding override of President Bush's veto of that bill. And the Pelican State will receive $2 billion in defense funds for various military projects and installations in that state under the Pentagon spending bill.

Hey, I've got a great idea. Let's rebuild a city that's just going to be destroyed again in a few years where no one wants to live anyway. Can I have my money back now·
