Argument: Rebuilding New Orleans can be funded by cutting pork
- Debate: Rebuilding New Orleans - pro argument.
Jay Ambrose. "To rebuild New Orleans, D.C. should forgo pork and corporate welfare". Desert News. 25 Sept. 2005 - "This nation is going to rebuild a major city -- New Orleans -- and that won't come cheap. Some say the federal government's contribution alone could end up being $200 billion, and some also say there's just one way to come up with the money: Raise taxes. [...] That's wrong, even though worries about the federal deficit are right. [...] You can start, in fact, with corporate welfare, a favorite target of the liberals as well as of many principled conservatives. [...] You can then move to pork, which used to be a specialty of Democrats until Republicans took over both houses in Congress."
