Wonder what might happen if the local Congressmen started their spending cuts with his own state's projects?

one of my US Senators is Harry Reid...no love lost there

the other used to be John Ensign....no respect there

my Congressperson is Shelley Berkley....no love there either..

but Senator Reid did have a NICE four lane highway built from Las Vegas to his hometown of Searchlight about 50 miles away...the freshly paved road ends at the outside city limit (its population is less than 1K people)
