Earmarking Travel to Disneyland and Space

The National Taxpayers Union is wondering if federal taxpayers should be forced to pay for a superfast train between Las Vegas and Disneyland.

Travel seems to attract the attention of earmarkers. One of the projects of the Institute for Scientific Research, the group in the news lately because of attention to earmarks reportedly obtained for West Virginia non-profits by Rep. Alan Mollohan, is research into the construction of a possible space elevator.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
