Hmnn ... not really

Pork barrel ?

Not so often...

The (truly) remarkable U.S. Corps of Engineers did not figure Katrina right, did they?

Who could possibly think that a US Congressman, who has lived in the district all of her/his life, might know better than than U.S. Corps of Engineers and their cost/benefit ratios?

They often do.

From the article: "Mr. Obey said Friday that over the last 12 years of Republican control the number of earmarks in the labor, health and education spending bill had risen to 3,000, from zero."

This vast increase in pet projects, like museums for teapots and the famous "bridge to nowhere" in Alaska, is what's at issue here. And if you think that earmarks aren't a problem, you aren't paying attention.
