The Big Kahuna

In the next week or two, the Senate will consider S. 27 the San Joaquin River Restoration Settlement Act.  This bill has been pushed by environmentalist extremists and would “settle” a 20 year old lawsuit that they’ve pursued against the federal government, in order to restore the salmon population of the San Joaquin River.  The best part of this bill is that the targeted area of water that this bill would help has been dry for the better part of 70 years.

This bill all by itself is outrageous, but thanks to Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), it has come to light that Democrats are planning to sneak in a massive earmark and “airdrop” it into this bill. The earmark will spend $1.1 billion in an attempt to put salmon into a river that has run dry.  The threshold for success is very small.  According to the settlement, if only 500 fish return, the project will be deemed successful. 

If you do the math, that makes each fish worth $2.2 million dollars.

Even for someone from Orange County $2.2 million is a lot for a fish.
