The Omnibus Bill’s ‘Hit Parade’ of Senatorial Theft

December 16th, 2010 - 11:29 am

Thanks to the perspicacious Jamie Dupree, the 1,924 page Omnibus Budget Bill has revealed a “hit parade of senatorial malfeasance.” It’s a long list but, for your convenience, here are the Top Twenty “Earmarkers” in the Senate:

  • Cochran (R-MS) 230
  • Wicker (R-MS) 199
  • Murray (D-WA) 172
  • Harkin (D-IA) 152
  • Reid (D-NV) 129
  • Menendez (D-NJ) 123
  • Feinstein (D-CA) 121
  • Lautenberg (D-NJ) 120
  • Lincoln (D-AR) 114
  • Inouye (D-HI) 113
  • Schumer (D-NY) 106
  • Johnson (D-SD) 105
  • Landrieu (D-LA) 104
  • Specter (D-PA) 103
  • Pryor (D-AR) 96
  • Levin (D-MI) 93
  • Stabenow (D-MI) 91
  • Boxer (D-CA) 90
  • Brown (D-OH) 87
  • Grassley (R-IA) 86

How bad are these legislators? Pretty bad, I would say. I think there is actually an argument for calling them criminals. After all, what are they attempting to do? They are taking the American taxpayers’ money — your money — and distributing it in near complete secrecy, with virtually no discussion and as quickly as possible, to their friends, supporters, pet projects, etc.
