>How much "Pork" is there really?


I had to chuckle at this post on Economist’s View.  Keep in mind that our deficit is running more than 10% of the federal budget, so eliminating the small sliver of "Pork" isn’t going to do it.  Economist’s View also has a graph that shows what the effect of new offshore drilling will be on world oil supply.

Hat tip to Mark Thoma at Economist’s View.
