An inside look at pork

Robert Novak takes an inside look at the debate within the Republican Party on pork. It is not an encouraging sight for conservatives.
Hastert believes it is not just the privilege but the duty of a House member to deliver federal projects to his constituents. Many younger conservatives could not disagree more, but most -- like Pence -- are loyal Republicans who are loath to criticize their leaders.
The message is not sinking in. We've applied pressure to the Republicans we've elected, and many of them are just brushing us off.

9/27 Edited to read "pork" in title. Not sure what the hell prok is.
