Alexander, Wamp hit taxpayers below belt

Senator Jim Demint and Rep. John Campbell very bravely tried to stop a taxpayer funded $2 million earmark to create a monument to the very powerful Rep. Charlie Rangel, The Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service. This in spite of House Rules which prevent naming monuments after sitting members.

Rep. Jim Cooper was the lone Democrat to vote against this ridiculous earmark, kudos to him. All other TN Dems voted for this earmark.

Reps Blackburn, David Davis, and Duncan, along with Sen. Corker voted against this earmark.

Senator Alexander and Rep. Wamp both voted in favor of this travesty. Zach Wamp is showing himself to be the quintessential BIG SPENDING REPUBLICAN, and Senator Alexander failed us big time also.
