If they stop handing out pork, can I have some of those tax dollars back?

That "This is not a scientific poll" is an understatement.

A better poll question might have been "Should State Legislature member items be eliminated?"

"Pork", in my way of thinking, is more like the riders legislators attach to pending bills as a payoff for them voting in favor of another legislator's bill.

Where do you accept poll suggestions? I would like to see this one answered: "If you see the police have set up a speed trap, do you flash your lights as a warning to oncoming traffic?"
