Below is a must read article, especially for those foolish Democrats that think that it’s only the Republicans or Conservatives that are on the take. I just laugh when I hear or read all the nonsense that is told over and over again by the gullible, foolish, naïve people who play party politics.
Guess what, if you haven’t figured it out by now they’re all for the most part crooks in my opinion. Until they prove themselves otherwise, I don’t by into nice crafted speeches that may sound good, but are just retold over and over again by the corporate propaganda news media so the masses could accept as truth because of its repetition.

House and Senate lawmakers have received nearly $2 million in campaign contributions this election cycle from organizations for which they had sponsored earmarks, according to a new report by two nonpartisan watchdogs.
Guess what else the report revealed,
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), chairman of the Appropriations Committee, was the top recipient of money overall with $140,700 in contributions from beneficiaries of his earmarks.
Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) received $70,000 from earmark recipients, the most of any House lawmaker. Moran sits on the House defense appropriations subcommittee and received most of that money from defense interests.
Now isn’t this just great how our Rulers take care of themselves first and think nothing about the little people or Serf that they rule over. Isn’t interesting that the chairman of the Appropriation Committee received the most. Also look at the letter “D” after both their names. Wake Up America while you still can!
