Is there really any more need to look for pork? Finding it is easy (e.g, e.g.). Prying it away from Congress is what's tough. And sometimes members don't even do anything with the pork the worked so hard to get: Can't we at least adopt some kind of "use it or lose it" provision where members of Congress give up their right to the dough if they don't use it after a certain amount of time? Who knows what dollar amount "significant" amounts of unused pork translates to, but whatever it is it seems like that's the first place to go for Katrina relief funds. Article here.
