Soundbite 2: Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Studying Arizona Ants Does Not Deserve Stimulus Money


"I can't leave out my Arizona projects that have been awarded. $500,000 to Arizona State University to study the genetic makeup of ants...and then, incredibly, $450,000 to the University of Arizona to study division of labor in ant colonies...I had no idea that so much expertise concerning ants resided in the major universities in my state and I must say I say that with an element of pride, but I'm not sure that it is deserving of these taxpayers dollars."
