Sam Graves - HIgh On Taxpayer Money

Graves has taken special legislation to an all time low (or high, as it may be). Check out the link to firedupmissouri.com http://www.firedupmissouri.com/graves_is_the_red_baron

The article reports on how Congressman Graves inserted special legislation to benefit not the tax payers, not Missouri farmers, but Sam Graves!!! Graves likes to fly his plane around. He got a law passed that allowed him to be reimbursed at twice the rate of congresspeople who drive cars.

I have no problem with him getting reimbursed at car rates, what is strange to me is why the taxpayers should pay for him to have the privilege of flying around his district. Graves just doesn't get it.

War in Iraq. Massive tax cuts for the wealthiest 1%, massive health care cuts for the lowest 25%. A drug program that is merely a cash payout to Big Pharma. Destruction of civil liberties. Jobs bleeding overseas.

Here's the deal: Criticizing the Repubs for squeezing an extra $.59 per mile from the treasury is a bit like pointing out that Hitler was not a very good painter. True, but hardly at the top of the list of failings.

Besides, if he gets enough questions about the first list, he won't want to land anywhere voters can ask. Just circle in the sky -- up with his deficit.

Wrong, Phil. This is one of those issues that hits voters right in the pocketbook. We're all shelling out $3 a gallon for gas which is bad enough, but here this guy thinks he's literally ABOVE us all and deserves thousands of extra dollars a year so he can tool around in his toy airplane.

What's that noise in air? It's Sam Graves wasting your tax dollars.

Very good, nitwit.

I agree, it may be small in relation to $450B annual deficits, but its a part of the Sam Graves story.

He votes against pay raises for our soldiers in iraq, votes for impoverishing our American war widows because he's too cheap to increase much-needed death benefits.

He's run up the national credit card by over a trillion dollars.

And now he wants US to pay for his private plane so he doesn't have to drive an hour from his house to your town. Or have to wait in line for gas like everyone else in his district.

That's the Sam Graves I want Kay Barnes to run against.

Thanks, Mainstream.

I do not disagree with holding his feet to the fire on this. I just think we underestimate the voters (and do not get our base activated and deNaderized) if we don't stay focused on the big sins.

Democrats on the War need to be at least as intelligent as the French politician who observed "There go my people. Now I must go lead them!" If we do not lead on the big issues, our voters will sit at home or be lured to phoneyliberal 3rd Party disaster.

So, by all means take shots at him on this. ("Look! Up in the sky! It's Sam Graves ... in his plane ... burning your tax dollars!". Or "Off he goes into the wild blue yonder ... paid for by taxes you pay...")

But let's stay focused on seeing fewer American soldiers in body bags. On that the people are really serious.

There is a lot of wow gold in the game and you can try your best to earn them as much as you can.You only want to get more and more World of Warcraft Gold to let you become strong, so you can go to upgrade and kill the monsters alone.It is the beautiful new beginning of the game, and I like the warcraft gold I want to satisfy you too.However you can also go to buy wow gold alone or with your friends together.You can change them through the cheap wow gold. Yet the freedom you seek is as close as the next moment.

Heath said that NC Soft could counterbalance loosed by improving on established gw gold services for games. With the online games business of using necessary GuildWars Gold, it is all about growing your subscriber base. It will also enable extra Guild Wars Gold and features such as voice mail. We will be able to offer our players a commanding set of communication tools and also some GuildWars money. I have a feeling all I will be doing is sitting and pvping with cheap gw gold.

The devaluation of the fiesta Gold grows faster than we think of it. I hope it is reflects to the management department about the question of the fiesta money.
It is caused by the continuous influx of fiesta online gold market currencies. On the other hand, buy fiesta Gold is one of these questions. The fiesta online money is one of the causes.
