This is insane. I recently saw a TV show where a special cave in California was profiled. That cave is the only place a tiny fish lives. Nothing else lives in the cave and feeds off of that fish. It doesn't go anywhere and contribute to the food chain, it's a closed system. They have built a cage around the entrance with 24 hour video surveillance, and a staff to monitor it. It costs us over $1M a year. Our government spends money like a drunk 3 y/o. Before long we're going to have to pay it back, and it's not going to be pretty.
You just have to know this was a last minute pork item attached to some perfectly good bill. If Mia Love gets her way this stuff will stop and be voted on separately. That way those "pet' projects will be out in the open.
