Bush vetoes water projects bill

We need more of this…

From the ap:

An increasingly confrontational President Bush on Friday vetoed a bill authorizing hundreds of popular water projects even though lawmakers can count enough votes to override him.

Good! It is about time he went back to principles, whether it holds up or not.

Bush brushed aside significant objections from Capitol Hill, even from Republicans, in thwarting legislation that provides money for projects like repairing hurricane damage, restoring wetlands and preventing flooding in communities across the nation.

Waaah! Waaah! We the people are not a never ending supply of money for the federal govt.

Bush objected to the $9 billion in projects added during negotiations between the House and Senate. He hoped that his action, even though it is sure not to hold, would cast him as a friend to conservatives who demand a tighter rein on federal spending.[snip…]

The legislation originally approved by the Senate would have cost $14 billion and the House version would have totaled $15 billion. Bush and a few Republicans complained that the final version was larded with unneeded pet projects pushed by individual lawmakers — sending the overall cost of the bill much higher.

“Only in Washington could the House take a $14 billion bill into a conference with the Senate’s $15 billion bill and emerge with a compromise that costs taxpayers over $23 billion,” said White House press secretary Dana Perino.

There it is folks,Congresses love for earmarks/pork to take home to their constituents. They and many people in this country, believe that this is their job! They are there to bring back federal money to them back in the states. Where is my Republic? Where is the government created by the Founding Fathers? How is it the federal government broke out of it’s Constitutional cage and people are fine with it?
