Why does it seem our politicians are always talking about how there's no money for Program X, and yet there's no end in sight to this kind of spending? Maybe we need some new legislation. Let's eliminate congressional salaries. Make Congress first fund all their programs and pork projects, then with whatever is left over from the budget that year, they can divvy it up among themselves. If they spend too much, then it comes out of their pockets. Somehow I don't forsee this happening anytime soon. And yet, if it were up to a vote of the people, it'd probably pass with flying colors. Funny how that works--or doesn't.
