My Thoughts on Sen. Daniel Inouye

Reading the statement about Sen. Daniel Inouye and his defense of earmarks was almost as funny as the Dilbert cartoon today.

It’s not just about the money, it’s what these so-called “public servants” do to get the money. He and the rest of the “earmark professionals” seem to think Americans are stupid or just don’t care.

Earmarks more often than not go into bills where a representative has “sold” his vote. They are being bribed to vote for things that aren’t always in the public interest.

Inouye makes it sound like he and his buddies are doing the American public a big favor by diverting taxpayer money to their pet programs.

His question, “Where is the so-called corruption?” is a joke.

Does he forget what went on behind closed doors when the Democrats pushed through Obamacare?

Yup, some Americans are stupid: They elected him to office again and they have their hands out in hope of getting more money that he “diverts” from the taxpayer.

Way to go, Dan.
