I’m not sure what to make of this:

According to the 2006 CAGW (Citizens Against Government Waste) Pig Book, Wisconsin ranked 3rd in Agriculture Pork receiving $17,361,000. Thank you Mr. Kohl and Mr. Obey!

On a per capita basis Wisconsin ranked 41st brining $21.28 of pork per person to the state or $117,819,000. This is down from last years ranking of 31st.

CAGW estimates approximately $29 billion in waste for 2006. This total is up from $27.3 billion last year.

My favorites are listed on page 29 of the report (link here) where two education programs are listed. One is out dated and spends over $65.6 million and the other has no requirements and spends $41 million. That would be over $106,000,000 for those of you keeping count!!!

How in the world do these things get passed?
