Is Republican Sen. George Voinovich’s middle name Hypocrite?
It should be.
Constituents receive a scare e-mail message from Senator that starts with line in bright red: “Currently, the U. S. Debt is estimated at
And then the answer goes green and says this month: $13,274,281,889,041.”
That’s a lot of money.
Then the parsimonious – or so he claims - Sen. Voinovich gives us another red line:
“Your share of today’s public debt is: (back to green) $42,350.”
That’s a lot of money, especially if you have children.
Voinovich can scare the hell out of you.
Well, the Senator then paints himself as a man with “management experience as Mayor of Cleveland and Governor of Ohio,” as well as telling us his personal mantra to “work harder and smarter and do more with less.”
I wonder what he was thinking then when he voted for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars WITHOUT PAYING FOR THEM. Without putting a penny aside.
The cost – rising by the millions daily – is at $734.7 billion. The George Bush war, backed by Sen. Voinovich, had nothing about paying for the war. It wasn’t in the budget.
George, where are your principles?
