Let me see if I have this right. Congress taxes business and the citizenry at ever increasing rates. Congress takes money off the top of those taxes to pay for their bloated administrative costs. Congressional members then attempt to buy our votes by returning a much smaller portion of our taxes back to their home districts, but only for the projects they wish, and only under the conditions they set. And we are supposed to feel grateful for this? Remember this simple process the next time your local official holds their press conference to announce a federal grant.
No wonder this is called pork - it sure stinks like a pig pen to me.
Robert Densic, Rossford
