Obama and Biden Voted for Bridge to Nowhere

10 posts in this topic

"Now that Alaska is front and center in the news again, it is a good time to catch up on a favorite story, The Bridge to Nowhere, using the Washington Post US Congress Votes Database.

Though Gov. Palin originally supported the earmark spending on the Ketchikan bridge (“to nowhere), she eventually killed the project, chosing to spend Federal money on other infrasturcture programs.

However, Sen. Biden and Sen. Obama voted for funding the Bridge, even when given a second chance by Sen. Tom Coburn, who proposed shifting earmark funds to Katrina relief."

Funny how the main stream media never mentioned this

For those unfamiliar with legislation: when you vote "aye" on a 1,752 page bill containing 6,376 projects totaling nearly $300 million in new infrastructure, you're probably not basing your vote on a bridge in Alaska. Which is why this passed 91-4.

Then how can Obama and Bidden blast Palin if they voted for it?

Probably because their campaign isn't based on the idea of rejecting earmarks.

Not only did he vote for it, even when given a second chance by Sen. Tom Coburn, who proposed shifting earmark funds to Katrina relief, he voted no.

So your saying he's not attacking Palin on the Bridge to Nowhere?

Obama isn't explicitly going around saying that he "fought the Bridge to Nowhere" like Palin is. In other words, he's attacking Palin's spin, not the fact that she voted for it.

Obama attacks her for being phony and pretending to be a pork-fighting maverick like McCain.

Obama never pretended to be someone who never voted for pork-spending and if you check his history: the dude cost us almost $100 MILLION in pork spending.

But Palin reduced Alaskas govt total spending from previous years, right?
