Yummy Pork!

The infamous Alaskian "bridges to nowhere" are back in the news. Back in October, with the costs of the hurricane Katrina relief mounting, this $2 billion boondoggle came in for some blistering criticism. In November it was finally killed. But like a Zombie searching for a midnight snack it has risen from the dead and shambles onward.

But fear not, dear Taxpayer, help is on the way:

Senate Republicans, by the narrowest margin yesterday, pushed through a major budget measure that would trim federal spending by nearly $40 billion over five years...

For the record that is a 0.3% reduction in spending. If you round that it is zero percent.
