Tea party Republicans are incredible hypocrites.
Newsweek put together a compilation of letters from tea party-friendly Republicans asking federal agencies for funds for their own districts. For example, Eric Cantor tried to get about $3 billion for a rail project in his state, while decrying rail projects in other states. Other letters are from Allen West, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, David Vitter and Ron Paul.
Check out “Libertarian” Ron Paul’s letter requesting federal government transportation cash for his district, even though Ron Paul would dissolve the Department of Transportion.
Check out Rick Perry’s letter begging for $2 billion in stimulus money — STIMULUS MONEY!
Here’s tea party favorite Michele Bachmann begging for transportation money.
This is the modern Republican Party. Utterly shameless.
