The AP reports about Democrats and their "pork barrel" items in the federal budget. These 'unnecessary' items include support for hospitals, dams, beach issues, among others. If federal money is being spent in this country, to help with the welfare, safety and quality of life of Americans, I cannot see how it is a "pork barrel" issue.
Nevertheless, if the Democratic Congress has sidestepped rules, that should be examined. There have been enough shortcuts in government in this country for quite some time.
