Thanks to Sen. Coburn, we can find the Wisconsin pork in the OmniPork SpendBill.

You must have been so wrapped up with the Christmas season that you forgot to include the "pet" projects for Republicans.

And I'm sure that you could give a specific rationale, based on your intricate knowledge of the purpose for each project listed, why it is deemed "pork".


Perhaps the projects will benefit our society in some way.

For example, the $850K for Marquette University Dental Outreach is used to help pay for a dental professor and two students to treat low-income and Medicaid patients in rural areas.

“We understand that this program is not enough to support the full need for care in these areas, which are suffering from a shortage of dental providers,” said Dr. Bill Lobb, Dean of Marquette's Dental School.

“But we hope that by introducing the students to the level of need and appreciation for their services in these communities, they will consider moving to these areas to practice after graduation.”

Hmmm, maybe the dental students will move to those locations, set up shop, create jobs (!), and help out the local economy.

Sounds like money well spent!

The post-language is clear. Info came from a Senate DB (linked for your convenience) and there were ZERO (R) porkies on the list.

You define "nice to have" as "necessary."

I don't.

Wait. I think you must have left off all the Feingold instances. Can you go back and check and report back. That commie, lefty, fascist, socialist, progressive, good-for-nothing lib-job must have been the top offender, right? Thank God he's been replaced by someone who would never suck up to lobbyists and put a bid in on the hog farm.

Even at your age, you can learn!!

It is not necessary to enable Marquette (CATHOLICS!) students provide dental care for low-income people living out in the styx?

So much for the sanctity of life.
Harsh, man. Thomas Aquinas would not approve of your thought process.

Says the link: "It's important to note that the database only refers to disclosed earmarks, not the billions in undisclosed earmarks."

I live in Wausau, where our arrogant, liberal mayor and city council just raised already punitive property taxes, then followed up with a 25% increase in water rates. I never heard a peep about the 2 mil handout or what they planned to do with it.
