Talk About A Bridge To Nowhere!

According to Brit Hume's Political Grapevine...

"The list of requested earmarks in congressional appropriations bills this year runs to hundreds of pages, and will take the better part of an hour to download all the requests, even with a fast Internet connection.

"Tucked away in this year's labor and health bill is two million dollars sought by New York Democrat, and House Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel. The beneficiary would be the City College of New York - to establish the 'Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service.'

That's right - he wants us to pay for a building named in his honor.

"Republicans tell opinionjournal.com they will target the request for criticism during the coming days - but it's worth noting members so far have rejected only one of the hundreds of earmark requests by politicians of both parties."
