Jim Burkee goes negative!

Washington is broken, and we know it by looking at our own congressman’s record on big government spending. Over Christmas, Congressman Sensenbrenner voted for a massive, $555 billion, 3,400 page spending package filled with earmarks, including $213,000 for olive fruit fly research in France.

Other pork projects funded in the bill that Congressman Sensenbrenner supported were

. $113,000 for rodent control in Alaska,
. $200,000 for a Hunting and Fishing Museum in Pennsylvania,
. $150,000 for a Louis Armstrong Museum in New York,
. $700,000 for a bike trail in Minnesota,
. $1,000,000 for river walk in Massachusetts,
. $200,000 for a post office museum in downtown Las Vegas,
. And $1,000,000 for an earmark requested by a House member who has been indicted on federal charges of racketeering, money-laundering, and soliciting bribes.

He also voted for a temporary tax fix that instantly added $50 billion to our national deficit.

This stuff isn’t just frustrating; Sensenbrenner’s out-of-control spending is wrong.

What? You don’t think that’s negative? The MSM does.
