6,600 individual spending requests totaling more than $8 billion in this spending, what are they thinking?
“Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) may have vowed to vote down the latest spending bill, but not before Fox’s Bill Hemmer uncovered a stubborn little fact: Cornyn has stuffed $16 million worth of earmarks into the bill.
Hemmer invited Cornyn on his show to talk about the new massive spending bill. Cornyn dutifully railed against it. But when Hemmer confronted Cornyn on his own $16 million worth of earmarks, the Senator tried to squirm his way out of it. To be fair, he did (just barely) by vowing to vote against it. But listen to the logic he used to defend his earmarks:”
Both parties of guilty of pigging out. They’re lie an addict who promises to quit but after just one more.
Cornyn, member of the Senate Budget Committee is another jackass that needs to be voted out.
Any politician who does not get it has to go. No more business as usual. Besides a two year moratorium on earmarks is not acceptable PERIOD.
Lastly, it is time for the old school guard to go as well. These old dogs have no interest in mending their ways or learning new tricks.
