PORK BARREL POLITICS
The term "pork barrel politics" usually refers to spending that is intended to benefit constituents of a politician in return for their political support, either in the form of campaign contributions or votes.
Here at our home on the state park, this is what pork barrel spending looks like.
Inside, you won't find anti-pork amendments, just corn.
And, here are our constituents.
Unfortunately for them, an amendment to kill four pork-barrel projects has passed. They will go to the packing house this week.
Thankfully for Tonto, earmarks continue and she is able to live for another term.
Stay tuned for more on the issues that are important around our house.
