    True to their porcine nature, Congress has filled the tax bill (supposedly a bill also to SAVE on some government expenditures) with $70+ billion in PORK. Special tax brakes for racetracks and Hollywood, and subsidies for rum. Our politicians are absolutely disgusting. Lobbyists pay them for pork. Congress is a bunch of cheap whores - they should at least get much, much, much larger payments for their votes.

    It doesn't matter if they are democrat or republican, all these politicians on Capitol Hill are corrupt and wasteful. All they think about is making a big name for themselves and to hell with the American people. If they will ever get serious about deficit reduction, the first thing that needs to be done is to cut out all the unnecessary pork barrel spending. There also cannot be anymore tax cuts.

    No more government subsidies to corporate interests; no more church tax exemptions; no more lobbying of congressional members allowed using financial incentives; no campaign contributions except for a public purse, which when exhausted by the political campaigners, is finished; term limits imposed - no career politicians.

    My suggestions on where to start.icon_evil.gif
