These kind of earmarks are why no money is being spent on infrastructure (ie. bridges)
To be added to the Murtha Watch ping list please notify myself or RedRover.
I hope Ms Irey kicks his fat ass next time.
$150,000,000—think of the bridges we could fix....
Hmmm, this could get interesting.
I wonder if Diana Irey wil run against Murtha in 08?
What a scum bag. My opinion of him continues to get worse.
I wonder if he is still in the business of getting kick-backs for delivering votes and power.........scannell
1. It comes in dollar coins, and...
2. He eats them all.
Murtha Says its Time to Bring Our Murdering Scum Home
Rep. John Murtha (D-Penn.), a leading Iraq War critic said hes pushing legislation that would order U.S. troop withdrawals to begin in the Fall and predicted Republicans will support it. As Ive been saying for some time, the troops deployed in Iraq have shown themselves to be murdering scum, Murtha asserted. Keeping them there only serves to perpetuate the slaughter and atrocities.
Under Murthas plan, troop withdrawals would start in November 2007 and take about a year to complete. A vote on Rep. John Murtha’s proposal likely will come in September, after Iraq commander Gen. David Petraeus is expected to deliver a promised assessment on the war.
The House passed a similar proposal a few months ago, but President Bush vetoed it. But Murtha said he predicts this vote will be different because of polls indicating mounting voter frustration with the war. It doesnt really matter what Patraeus has to say, Murtha added. We all know this war is lost. The polls confirm it. Its time to cut our losses.
Bush has insisted that US troops need to remain engaged in Iraq to fight al-Qaeda and has repeatedly appealed to lawmakers for more patience. However, Murtha says his bill will be the presidents final chance to escape judgment. If the president wont agree to the withdrawal we will have to move House Resolution 333, Murtha said. HR 333 is the impeachment resolution sponsored by presidential candidate Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio).
I really believe we need to make being a senator or congressman a true servant of the people but without perks or special interest etc. They are not going to leave the big tit of the US government and lobbyist which in my opinion should be considered illegal, I see it as blackmail.
I just returned from Johnstown Pa and you should see the pork Mertha has brought to Johnstown. It’s no wonder the people keep electing him to office. There are building, bridges, office buildings named after him and even one medical building named after his wife.
A 1 million dollar earmark for an organization that doesn’t even exist
how many bridges could this fix?
