Rick Boucher King of Pork?

My congressman, the feckless democrat Rick Boucher gets a double dose this morning for his love of pork. Jerry From on High has Why Boucher Is Licking His Chops ...Jerry rightfully takes issue with ole Feckless's use of transportation funds to restore the abandoned Bristol Train Station....A $5 million dollar investment into a abandoned station?

Where'd that money come from?
A big chunk of it came from the federal transportation budget.
And who was the idiot who acquired it from desperately needed transportation funds?
Rick Boucher. ~
From on High

It's madness I tell you! A Bristol Herald Courier reader notices Boucher's waste with this LTE.

Published: December 19, 2008

Early this week Congressman Rick Boucher was shown on a local TV station extolling the merits of his latest vote buying bid to build another museum in Southwest Virginia, using transportation department funds.

At least $1.5 million of transportation funds were used to renovate the Bristol Train Station. Here again Boucher, Senator Warner and Tennessee politicians were involved in this misuse of transportation funds.

One of the more egregious examples of misuse is the $750 million secured by Boucher to build horse trails in a national forest.

In Virginia, adequate funds aren’t available to maintain existing highways, much less build new ones. Yet we continue to allow our elected officials to buy our votes and defend their actions by stating the mantra that state/federal laws mandate spending transportation funds for non-transportation projects.

Who is to blame? We, the voters, who act like pigs at the trough when it comes to taking this “free money.” The only way to change this is to send a clear message to both parties that this misuse of funds must cease.

Jerry Chorosevic, Sr.

A clear message indeed.
