Glenn and TTLB are nobly trying to unite bloggers and unleash the power of the blogosphere to help cut federal pork-barrel spending by exposing pork projects they know about locally and making a BIG stink. They've even come up with a clever "handle" and a cute logo/button: "PORKBUSTERS."
This is all well and good - and it may expose some heretofore unknown examples of pork (though I'd betchya most people know where most of the fat is: in other peoples districts!!! Heh!)
There's a much MUCH simpler way to do it, and I guarantee it'll be 100% effective:
Let's just put all the Congressmen and Congresswomen on COMMISSION!
That would give them a personal incentive to cut spending. Here's how it would work: The Congress'd get a 2% commission - TAX FREE! - of whatever they cut/save. The Congressmen would have to share it, so, it would get divided by 535 the members of Congress. If they cut $60BILLION, then each Senator and Representative would get $225,000. The more they cut, the more they make. This gives them incentive to cut A LOT. But if they cut too much, then their constituents might vote them out of office.
