That is an excellent point.
I dont trust any of them to actually spend money where they say it will be spent.
The only way to secure that is to write into law provisions that will specify where they money goes.
And then that creates another problem-what if that money would be far better served paying for something else?
We should provide some leeway to them-maybe if two-thirds agree to divert funds elsewhere then they can do that.
