John Murtha, a former Marine, & now a western PA. Congressman, is a poor excuse for AN AMERICAN. This is an example of the SLIME THAT HAS INFECTED OUR COUNTRY. Vote this guy “out of here”.
1. Congressman Murtha says (in 2007) ; ” our Marines over reacted and killed Iraq civilians in cold blood”. This was a lie; Murtha never apologized; is being sued by the Marine; and he is being investigated by the FBI for other matters.
2. He gets Congress to spend $150 million for the John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport in Johnstown, PA. This airport has 3 flights per day to Washington, DC, that carry an average of 20 people per day. That is 6.66 people per flight.
Besides the $150 million of our $ spent by our representatives in Congress for this Murtha sponsored, “WHITE ELEPHANT AIRPORT”, we also subsidize each passenger an average of $100 per flight or $730,000 per year. Total cost to date is well over $200 million including the airport cost to date, annual Murtha (EARMARKS), airport operating costs and passenger ticket subsidies.
This is a small example of how CONGRESS IS BANKRUPTING THE COUNTRY. (Five and Ten cents at a Time) = Billions of $ per year)
Lets vote this guy to the retirement home…….. in 2010…………..
