Piling on the pork

The aid bill recently passed will help those with small businesses and those without a paycheck.

However, Speaker Pelosi owed the nation an explanation why she flew back from California to stifle the bill and add things unrelated to combating the virus and helping all Americans.

Why millions to Public Radio, Brown University and $25 million to the Kennedy Center would have been better allocated to the actual bill would not make sense?

I wonder if there has ever been a bill passed on its own merits without someone adding unrelated pet projects to it. Doubt it.

These people were elected to serve the American people, not themselves.
