seMissourian.com: Column: Mike Jensen: Redistribution on steroids Can anyone defend this type spending?? This is outright theft of the American people. Remember the bridge to nowhere in Alaska which got tons of media attention? That "little" pork project was only slated to get about $400 million. Pocket change and obviously a rank amatuer compared to Rep Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, a democrat. Curious to see how much play this gets in the MSM. I'm guessing not much.
