If you needed more proof . . .

"Miami Mayor Manny Diaz led a phalanx of mayors to the White House and Capitol Hill Wednesday to push Congress for speedy passage of an economic recovery plan. The mayors have their own massive wish list for the package -- much of which won't make the cut -- but Diaz, who heads the U.S. Conference of Mayors, said the group is eager to get money flowing. . . . The full-court press came as Senate Republicans balked at the cost of President Barack Obama's stimulus plan, forcing the White House to ramp up its push for passage. Senate Republicans -- and some moderate Democrats -- say there is too much spending in the bill."

When the mayors are literally lining up outside Congress asking for more pork in the stimulus bill, isn't it proof that there's too much pork in the stimulus bill?
