Senator John McCain Tweets Top Ten Pork Projects in Omnibus Spending Bill


Here is GOP Senator John McCain’s list of the top ten porkiest projects in the Omnibus Spending Bill.
  1. $1.7 million for pig odor research in Iowa
  2. $2 million “for the promotion of astronomy” in Hawaii – because nothing says new jobs for average Americans like investing in astronomy
  3. $332,000 for the design and construction of a school sidewalk in Franklin, Texas – not enough $ for schools in the stimulus?
  4. $2.1 million for the Center for Grape Genetics in New York – quick peel me a grape.
  5. $650,000 for beaver management in North Carolina and Mississippi
  6. $1 million for mormon cricket control in Utah – is that the species of cricket or a game played by the brits?
  7. $300,000 for the Montana World Trade Center – enough said
  8. $200,000 “tattoo removal violence outreach program to could help gang members or others shed visible signs of their past” REALLY?
  9. $475,000 to build a parking garage in Provo City, Utah
  10. $1.7M “for a honey bee factory” in Weslaco, TX

Tax and spend = Obama Administration and his Democrat cronies in Congress.

The next time you purchase a gallon of gas or see your paycheck with its witholds of payroll taxes remember all of those tattoos you are helping remove.

How ridiculous is this?

  1. I think you should put the name of the representative who is requesting the offensive spending.

    Because so many Republicans were complaining about it, and stopped passage of the budget because of it, I just naturally assumed all the earmarks were put into the bill by Democrats but I am listening to CNN and just heard about all the ones that were put in by Republicans, including your BFF Lindsey Graham.

    Besides, don’t these projects create jobs? What’s wrong with that?

    This sounds kind of partisan politics to me, same old Washington, DC

  2. Deane, Good Idea ! List them by project,state and party affiliation. We NEED to KNOW which ones not to reelect. I hope that would be the prevailing idea. FIRE EVERYONE of THEM. Some news organizations Such as the ole Clinton NEWS network CNN, and the OBAMA news network MSNBC only focus on the opposite party affiliation ‘s woes.
    Small Businesses create jobs, Not goverment ! This has even been siad by the Annointed one the Chief ACORN Barrack Saddaam Osama. OOPS
    BOTTOM LINE- IF we have to borrow money WE CAN”T AFFORD ANY PORK FROM ANY ONE !
    What started all this?
    The Housing Collapse and out of control spending right?
    How is borrowing more and spending more gonna cure it ?
    Divide the total amount of money spent by both parties trying to advance their pro or con stance on the Trillion dollar package.
    Add the trillion dollars to it.
    Divide it up and send it to all taxpayers, and US CITIZENS. THAT would CURE the Economic Downturn.
    That wouldn’t advance the Cradle to Grave crowd’s agenda or the get the govt outta our business’s agenda. IT WOULD ONLY CURE THE ECONOMY. Anyone who votes against that just publish their name. The voters could CURE THEM While the parties referee us fighting each other they’re on a spending spree
