That was pretty much my point. There is no constituency for not spending money. It stands to reason that more bison farmers are going to turn out and support a bill that creates funding to preserve the bison than will taxpayers who don't want their money wasted that way. Government programs always grow, they never die. Shit, we are still supporting goat farmers because we used to use wool in the army's uniforms back around the time of the civil war. I think two things have to change. 1) There should be a constitutional limit on spending at each level of government -- not some bullshit rule that the legislature can diddle with. 2) We must creat a broader stake in the cost of government. Too many people are immune to the effects of runaway spending. Maybe then we wouldn't have assholes like this spending $200,000 of government money getting blowjobs.
