The bill passed, don’t cry over spilled milk. She might as well get some of the money for her constituents.
Yes this is so obviously the answer. It is appalling to me that the press is taking a position that it is hypocritical to request funding for your constituents from a bill you opposed. The logical conclusion of this thinking is if you pass a bill only the districts of the congressman who voted for it get the money. Essentially rewarding the profligate and punishing the responsible. Of course that is what the D’s and the press want.
Precisely correct, especially since if she does NOT get the money, it will mean that her constituents would be giving money to the fed with nothing in return. Once the bill is passed, she MUST try to get some of it back, since the cash is coming from her taxpaying voters.
yeah...you are not conservative..
Then don't condemn the program and criticize those who supported it if you've got your nose in the trough along side them.
Exactly! It is her constituents money being spent too! They might as well get some of it back.
Exactly. I cannot believe anyone with common sense would complain about this.
