H/T to Bluey Blog for alerting me to this site.
Lately, I have heard news about legislation being passed in Congress to limit the number of earmarks allowed in appropriations bills. This is a great idea and is designed to control government spending on unnecessary legislation such as the infamous Bridge to Nowhere. Thank goodness for Minority Leader John Boehner’s brilliant idea to create a website designed to hold certain legislators accountable for their spending habits. The website also gives information on a piece of legislation that is designed for earmark reform by Rep. Frank Wolf, Rep. Jack Kingston and Rep. Zach Wamp. It has been co-sponsored by many members of the House.
However, the liberal leftist House leaders fear this website, because it is exposing their high crimes of being porkers. These tax and spend Democrats do not want to be held accountable by their constituents for fear that it will ruin their tarnished reputations. Shame on Rep. Nancy Pelosi and the majority leadership for not allowing Americans to monitor their Representative’s spending behavior.
We deserve the right to check how our legislators are behaving in Congress. This website will only allow us to see how Congress is spending our hard earned tax dollars and hold them accountable when they make mistakes.
