Stupak 11 Pork

After voting for ObamaCare, Stupak wants $578 million in pork

A day after Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., and ten other House members compromised on their pro-life position to deliver the necessary yes-votes to pass health care reform, the “Stupak 11″ released their fiscal year 2011 earmark requests, which total more than $4.7 billion–an average of $429 million worth of earmark requests for each lawmaker.

Whether this is actually a buy off or not for their votes for ObamaCare, it looks like a buy off of Stupak and his cronies. Regardless, this is Washington, D.C. where corruption reigns supreme. Those Representatives and Senators, Democrat, Republican or Independent, that partake in earmarks (aka pork) when the nation is in debt, social security, medicaid, and medicare are effectively bankrupt, and the deficit is growing, merely confirm their own corruption and the need for them to be removed from office.
