true character of our "representatives. via Mark Shea
Rep. Don Young attacked his fellow Republicans on the House floor Wednesday, as he defended education funds allocated to his home-state of Alaska.Can't tell what has corrupted his world, can we? And yes this is Alaskan Rep. Young of the "Bridge to Nowhere" fame.
"You want my money, my money," Young stridently declared before warning conservatives that, "Those who bite me will be bitten back."
Young took extreme exception to an amendment by Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) to strike money in a spending bill for native Alaskan and Hawaiian educational programs.
Seems he is getting just a bit to cozy in his fat-cat seat.
During his brief tirade Wednesday, Young suggested Republicans lost their majority because Garrett, whom he did not specifically name, and others had challenged spending during the GOP's tenure.I think the lack of challenges to GOP spending would be more accurate. But then, it is just lowly taxpayers getting the shaft.
