http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...nding-bill-sprinkled-with-for-local-projects/ The project is several years behind schedule, is a case study in government cost overruns like nothing since the military's $600 toilet seats, and probably isn't even necessary. The bill also pays the widow of Sen. Frank Lautenberg a death benefit equivalent to the late lawmaker's salary of $174,000. Sounds reasonable, since it's traditional when a congresional member dies in office. Until you realize Lautenberg's estate, left entirely to his wife, is worth $59 billion. I thought the whole idea was just to keep the government from defaulting on its debt. What has a questionable and overly expensive dam, or Lautenberg's widow, got to do with that?
