One PIG diverts $165 Million just in the Defense bill

http://earmarkwatch.org/2008-house-defense/sponsor/387/

Rep. Murtha (D-PA) has Defense earmarks totaling $166,500,000

None of the earmarks are vetted. These are contracts given without bids and without any concern if the Military will benefit from the expenditures.

One hundred sixty six million, five hundred thousand smacks?! Holy shit! You think we could kill people and break things--this time--for all that PORK?!
