Pathetic Porkers



Text  



There is no other word to describe the bulk of Congressional Republicans who voted in favor of the bloated farm bill.  The legislation will increase farm spending by 44 percent over last year, and with GOP backing, Bush’s veto will be overturned. Were that not bad enough, as Bob Novak reports here, 17 Senate Republicans joined the Democratic leadership in removing the earmark “reforms” that some Republicans like to trumpet.

My own Congressman, Rep. Steve LaTourette, joined the pork parade by supporting the farm bill.  No surprise there, as LaTourette’s been a weak sister for quite some time, but this is the last straw.  I’ll never vote for him again.  I’m sick of big government guys like him giving the rest of the party a bad name.
