Massachusetts legislators have already dedicated almost $38 million towards the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate - yes, that's really what it's called. I call it the Edward M. Kennedy Shrine to Pork. During Kennedy's reign he pushed through enough pork to fill the trough to overflowing.
And this year his family is coming back for even more piggy funds -- I do believe they think of it as an entitlement - they want another $30 million in TAXPAYER funds to spend on the Shrine.
And this is during the worst recession in American history. The rich and powerful are at it again -- gimme, gimme, gimme.
The Kennedy family is rich, rich, rich. They have ubber rich friends. They should get ALL funding for the Shrine from their friends or their own bank accounts -- NOT THE BELEAGUERED TAXPAYERS - who, according to the CBO yesterday, are getting slapped with another $1.5 trillion in debt for 2011, thanks to millions of PORK projects just like the Kennedy Shrine.
We are at the tipping point, off the cliff, under water, call it what you want. We are BROKE. And no money should be spent on this Shrine or any other project that is not Constitutionally mandated. Be sure to enter your protest to the Kennedy Shrine at this link.
