I want my Congressman to get extra money for state projects. It means he is doing his job as a representative of my state.

I don't really see it that way.

I mean, if he's getting money for a bridge nobody needs while other things are in desperate need of money, I say he's doing a shitty job.

Exactly. There is a time and place for sending extra money to those things, just like there is a time and place for tax cuts. Right now does not seem like a great time to spend on every little expensive thing.

I didn't say all the time.

But giving New York the same amount of money to fight terrorism as Idaho was a failure on the part of our congressmen.

That's different. I don't think those funds were pork. They were for Homeland Security.

Why is it a shitty buy???

In recessions, basic necessities tend to do better.
