Pork Bills

John McCain votes against lots of bad things. One thing he wants to vote against is a pork bill. A pork bill benefits only a little bit of people but everyone has to pay for it. It started in 1817 when the bonus bill was made to build a highway linking the East and South of the United States to its Western frontier. And they still do it. The congress recently spent $2 million to put sand on the beach at Topsail Beach. Another time they spent $50,000 for the sesquicentennial celebration in Morehead City.

When McCain is president we will no longer have to worry about pork bills. Personally I think pork bills are wrong and therefore should be banned. I bet McCain feels the same way.
