Kline votes with Bush over Minnesotans

Congressman Kline shows his super-sized loyalty to President Bush when he continues to vote for funding Iraq bridges with all it's cost overruns, lack of oversight, and chronic issues- but then votes against funding Minnesotan’s I35 fallen bridge.

Funny how Kline calls funding money for Minnesota's transportation and road infrastructure pork but didn’t label the famed Alaskan boondoggle ‘bridge to nowhere’ as pork…

Even Republican John McCain said that Congress could share in the blame for the Minnesota bridge collapse because lawmakers diverted billions of dollars in transportation money from road work to pet projects."I think perhaps you can make the argument that part of the responsibility lies with the Congress of the United States," the Arizona senator said.

I couldn't agree more Mr. McCain, the responsibility for the fallen bridge does lie with those in congress that would fund 'bridges to nowhere', or build bridges in Iraq while not funding to rebuild the Minnesota I35 bridge.
