SA Spending Reform

Habiba Musah ’08 writes in today’s Daily Dartmouth that the Student Assembly should fund such organizations as KatrinaHelp because the governing body already wastes money on pet projects like foosball tables. But is this really an argument in favor of more spending, as Musah suggests? It sounds to me like an excellent argument in favor of spending restraint. Perhaps if the Assembly had a more limited budget—$90,000 is rather a lot—it would choose its priorities better.
