1*  How closely have you followed news reports about a proposed ban on allowing members of Congress to steer taxpayer money to pet projects in their home districts?



2* Do you favor or oppose a ban that prohibits all members of Congress from steering taxpayer money to pet projects in their home districts?



3* Is taxpayer money fairly apportioned among all the states, or do some members of Congress make sure their states get more money than other states?



4*  Which candidate would you vote for – a candidate who would work to cut federal spending or a candidate who worked to make sure your district gets a fair share of all federal spending?


5*  Is a member of Congress who works to get as much federal money as possible for his district more interested in what’s best for his constituents or more interested in how that money will improve his chances for reelection?
