We'd complain about it less if we saw it being used effectively. I hate hearing about all the stupid crap our government spends money on knowing that it came out of my paycheck.

One local project has had $400 million spent in studies and planning for 14 years before construction even began! And it's got almost half a billion in overruns already. This is to replace a bridge that cost $245 million (adjusted to todays dollars) about 50 years ago.
