Boyda Fails

The Club for Growth analyzed 50 amendments on the House floor which were called on to strip wasteful earmarks/spending projects from appropriations bills. They called it the "RePork Card."

Nancy Boyda's score - 0%.

Yep, Nancy couldn't find ONE project she deemed wasteful to vote against.

Here's a partial list:

$2 million for a "Paint Shield for Protecting People from Microbial Threats," requested by Rep. John Murtha (D-PA). Rep. John Campbell challenged Murtha to demonstrate that the $2 million earmark would be effective and that it had been put up for a competitive bid. Murtha could not. Amendment failed, 91-317.

$1 million to the Center for Instrumented Critical Infrastructure in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, requested by Rep. John Murtha (D-PA). No congressional member could confirm the existence of the alleged Center. Amendment failed, 98-326.

$2 million to establish the "Rangel Center for Public Service" at City College of New York, requested by none other then Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY). Amendment failed, 108-316.

$34 million for the Alaska Native Education Equity program, requested by Rep. Don Young (D-AK). When Scott Garrett challenged Young's earmark, Rep. Young declared, "You want my money, my money!" Amendment failed, 74-352.

$50,000 for the National Mule and Packers Museum in California, requested by Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA). Amendment failed, 69-352.

$100,000 for renovation of the Fire Fighters Hall in Columbus, Ohio, requested by Rep. Deborah Pryce (R-OH). Amendment failed, 66-364.

$100,000 for the renovation of St. Joseph College's theatre in Indiana, requested by Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-IN). Amendment failed, 97-328.

spoken like a true tax and spend liberal supporter of Nancy's.

Your saying it's good she couldn't find one item of government waste. What a joke you and Nancy are.

We all know she's a tool but couldn't she at least have tried to parlay some money to replace the $30 million for Kansas militay families that she threw away?

And the "Rangel Center for Public Service"! I'm glad she voted for that just so I could see something so laughable in print.

I can't stand Nancy but Club for Growth has no credibility left nationally or in Kansas.

This is the same group that gave Jerry Moran (KS-01) a 4% and Todd Taihrt a 0% too - just like Boyda. I would not call them tax and spend liberals by any stretch.

Let's get rid of Boyda but I think we can do it without some out of state special interest group.

This is the same organization that gave Dennis Moore a better score than Jim Ryun, Jerry Moran, or Todd Tiahrt last year. So if you believe Moore is more conservative that any of those guys, I'd put a lot of stock in this.
