Here's more federal money for Dr. R. Blake Curd to send back to Washington: funding for the Lewis and Clark water system. President Barack Obama is proposing "just" $2 million for the water project in his FY 2011 budget. That's a lot to you and me, but L&C project chief Tory Larson says that "won't even keep the lights on."
Essentially, according to Larson, the President is defunding this project and saving Uncle Sam and you the taxpayer money. But I guarantee my conservative neighbors who run my fair city and its economic development organs will soon be begging our Congressional delegation to pour more federal money into Lewis and Clark to run that big water pipe up to Madison.
So to my Glenn Beck-lovin' neighbors, I pose this question: Jason, Linda, Neal, cousin Aaron, where do you stand on this specific project? Is this federal spending acceptable? Or do we thank the President for cutting the appropriation, ask him to cut further, and build our own water system with local money?
