Here's Levin's poor defense regarding Pork.
Michigan is getting tens of millions of dollars in 'budget earmarks' in a federal spending bill that the president is expected to sign today.
Republican lawmakers complain the entire bill contains $5 billion in wasteful spending.
Michigan Senator Carl Levin disagrees.
"They think, 'Gee if you eliminate all those earmarks there would be less federal spending.' That is not the case," says Levin.
That is called government math. If I spend money on a project, it takes money. If the earmarks are taken out, it is less money which is less spending. That is obvious...to anybody but Carl Levin aka Lenin.
