Young Hates Fiscal Responsibility

Despite the fact that the public pretty much hates earmarks, Young doesn't care:

But that hasn't slowed Rep. C.W. Bill Young, who will send more money home than all but one member of the U.S. House. Young, 76, a Republican from Indian Shores, has slipped $128-million for pet projects into federal appropriations bills, mostly for defense contractors and colleges in Pinellas County.

It seems borderline treasonous to focus on pet projects during wartime and all-time record debts. Lets get Samm Simpson into that office so she can do the right thing.
