Pigs 82, Taxpayers 15

Yesterday the US Senate defeated Sen. Coburn's amendment, which would have eliminated $445 MILLION to build a bridge to a small island in Alaska. The same amount of money could have been used to purchase a LearJet for every inhabitant of the island, by the way.

One vote against the Pigs was Feingold.

Missing in action, by the way, was Senator John McCain, who did not vote.
