Happy Thanksgiving, Love Congress

by Kevin Boyd

Our masters in the District of Corruption have decided to give us a Thanksgiving day present. One of the political heirs of Barry Goldwater, Congressman Jeff Flake (R-AZ), exposes this gift.:

Mesa, Arizona, Nov 22 – Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today highlighted pork projects contained in the Agriculture appropriations bill for fiscal year 2006.

This week’s egregious earmarks: $234,000 for the National Wild Turkey Federation, $600,000 for cranberry production conservation in Massachusetts and Wisconsin, $1,497,000 for potato research, and $500,000 for the Corn Growers Associations in Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois.

“I’m sure that taxpayers aren’t giving thanks for the cornucopia of pork this year,” said Flake.

Happy Thanksgiving, now bend over.
