When Pigs Fly: Con-gress Inserts over 4,000 Pork Earmarks in Spending Bill. Leftist Tyrant NY Sen Schumer alone has $80 Million ripped off from you and I to assist in his re-election. Traitorous Scum!

Excerpt: "According to the Hill, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) alone has a long list of earmarks for his state ahead of his reelection bid. That includes 59 earmarks totaling nearly $80 million in the transportation and housing and urban development (HUD) section alone. While Congress disavowed earmarks, the pork-ridden bill shows that both parties have abandoned the pledge. Spending trillions in the last couple years appears to have removed any sense of fiscal responsibility or accountability. We are now over $30 trillion in debt so what are a few pork items — or in Schumer’s case 142 such items. (Some argue that debt is really only $22 trillion and that debt does not matter). It was a clever move at a perfect time. With Ukraine raging and people traumatized over the war, leadership like Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Cal.) kept bringing questions back to $14 billion in aid for Ukraine. Members stressed that there was no time to waste — or in this case to read — before voting. It is a familiar tactic on pork spending. You can hide an entire drove of pigs behind a single redeeming budget item."

    Has anyone ever read these bills? Ever notice the MSM never names the bill exactly, i.e. H.R. 1786, etc...???

    They don't want us to go to: WWW.CONGRESS.GOV
    and read what they are doing.

    NOT TO MENTION. Have you ever tried to read a 3,000 page bill? I looked at this recent 2700 page stack of anus paper. You fall asleep just reading the Table of Contents.

    And finally, all the bills have a sentence in the beginning. "To establish...enact a...benefit the American People..............(AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES."

    That last piece. And for other purposes. That's how they justify stealing trillions of dollars while spending 13 billion on the Ukraine.
