GOPers hypocritcally feeding at the trough
Newsweek looked into the activities of some of the more outspoken critics of federal spending and what did they find?

read it here

They found that more than 50 of these tea party members of congress, who rail daily against Obama and the bloated federal government, are not only allowing it in their districts, they are WORKING TO GET IT, and most hypocritically of all...using the same arguments that they complain about in public.

This is no ordinary stuff, or ordinary folks either.  A few samples (you should really read the rest for yourself)

House Speaker John Boehner has derided President Obama’s clean energy agenda while pressuring the administration for a clean energy loan guarantee for a uranium project in his home state of Ohio, among other requests for special treatment for specific companies.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, an outspoken critic of the stimulus and a champion of fiscal discipline, wrote letters seeking stimulus money and took credit with his constituents.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who led the GOP’s debt reduction efforts this summer and bashed stimulus spending, sought money for the stimulus in private letters for projects like high-speed rail.

and last but not least:

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, the presidential candidate and libertarian champion, is relentless in calling for the shrinking of government spending while seeking tax dollars for his district from some of the very programs he criticizes.

This is appalling, but so typical of the GOP
