Following Jacki’s post from earlier today —
John McCain will probably brag he does not have a single entry in the “Congressional Pig Book“, yet he is willing to spend $12 billion a month in Iraq.
Which is worse?
Total cost of all pork in 2008: $17.2 Billion
Cost of War in Iraq in 2008: $144 Billion
And the $144 Billion won’t build anything here at home, which is exactly what most of that pork does.
