I can agree with you that this seems like a strange place for the administration to suddenly discover fiscal resposibility. If their has to be PORK of any kind, surely the Veterans are more deserving than others.
However, I dont think it is fair to blame Chu himself for the rampant spending of your President. He is to blame, he is a joke, and he is a liar.
Every American should be sick to their stomachs over the way that this president has abandoned the people who put him in office. No PORK is good PORK, and I didnt mean to suggest that condom givaways were more important than the Vets.
My point was that PORK is PORK from either side of the aisle, and it ALL must be stopped. Maybe if Bush would unwrap himself from the flag long enough to do something substantive, instead of lying to his followers, and breaking his oath to defend the Constitution, we might not be in this mess.
"My point was that PORK is PORK from either side of the aisle, and it ALL must be stopped."
I concur with this. The problem is, when it comes to feeding at the taxpayer trough, Republicans are equally as greedy as Democrats. After all it was a Republican congress that last year snuck through a 'automatic' payraise for every congressman - when every other American was getting laid off, reduced, or downsized. And it was a Republican (Bush) who added billions to the black hole of waste we call the Dept of Education. It is a pathetic situation.
