Fund on pork
OpinionJournal's John Fund:
If Republicans lose big in November, one reason will be their tardy response to public outrage over profligate spending....
The federal government is now an astounding 185 times as big in real terms as it was a century ago. A general sense that Republicans have forgotten why they were sent to Washington is a big reason why only 43% of Republicans approve of Congress in this month's Fox News poll. If Republicans can't better explain how they plan to get a grip on spending, many voters will conclude they both deserve and need a time-out from power.
