Oink, oink

The letter to the Editor in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram today reminded us of the “This little piggy” rhyme…

Of course ours cried, “Me, me, me!” all the way home…

Thanks for saying what everyone is thinking, well done, sir.

On the one hand, Kay Granger voted against the recent "fiscal cliff" deal because she opposes increased government spending. On the other hand, her stated goals for the upcoming session are to ensure increased funding for government programs at Lockheed Martin and for the glorified pond north of downtown known as the Trinity River Vision.

Here is my "vision" of Washington: hypocritical representatives like Granger talking about reducing federal spending while extending their arms for more handouts. Which is it, Ms. Granger, pork for your district or fiscal conservatism? You can't have it both ways.
