McCain’s Pork

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.

InsideOutsider is a longtime Democrat who has worked for a variety of progressive organizations and causes. He lives in Washington, DC.
