Curing "Pork"

Not talking here about delicious BBQ..

Each senator/congressperson is naturally going to want to bolster their approval "back home", so why not just allocate some discretionary funds available to them for the "folks back home"...

Base the amount on the number of constituents represented by that legislator.

Make it PUBLIC information, available online, and just leave it up the THEM how it gets spent....but they have to account for every penny.

AND..

at the same time, make it LAW, that spending bills will be "pork-free" and as much as possible, be single-issue legislation that has to be of benefit to ALL citizens, and to the detriment of NONE.

If it's a transportation bill, there is no "girly-bits" legislation tacked onto it..
