Hoekstra: Who, Me?

Congressman Pete Hoekstra was recently on Jay Morris to discuss Mike Cox's campaign ad alleging that Hoekstra is a big spender.

Hoekstra's defense was basically this.

1. Big spender? Who, me?

2. Ok, technically I did vote for the Bridge to Nowhere.

3. But that was merely one small provision in a much, much bigger highway spending bill.

4. Which I voted for.

5. But I sleep on my couch.

Hoekstra never got around to vote for the TARP bailout, which he voted for.

He also didn't mention voting for the Medicare Part D prescription drug bill, which added a present value cost of 17 trillion dollars to the off-books national debt.
