Americans across the country are realizing that the debt we are passing to the next generation is an unacceptable incumbent strategy. Bringing home the pork means passing off the debt to our children and grandchildren. If this is just as intolerable to you as it is to me then I hope you will join the Cravaack Team at www.VoteChip.org and……don’t forget to tell a friend.
Has clout become the ‘kiss of death’?
The back-to-back primary defeats of two powerful appropriators have sent an unmistakable message to lawmakers: The trappings of power can be a trap.
On Tuesday night, West Virginia Democrats eighty-sixed Rep. Alan Mollohan, making him the first House appropriator to lose in a primary since 1980. Over the past weekend, Utah Republicans denied three-term Sen. Bob Bennett a spot in the party’s primary, making him the first Senate appropriator ousted in a nomination contest since Clifford Case of New Jersey in 1978.
