But will President Bush have the guts? That's not to say I want him to veto it necessarily, but when the editors of the National Review and the New York Times both agree that the highway bill is a huge, steaming pile of grade F snausage, it's hard to disagree. That up to 40% of the money isn't even spent on highways or transportation ("Two typical examples are a program to combat adolescent obesity, and funding for a magnetic-levitation demonstration." -- NR) is a pretty strong sign that as much as I believe we should be spending money to combat congestion, this bill is so wasteful that it'll do more harm than good. (HT: Ryan Woodhams.)
