Chet Edwards is Hostile to Taxpayers

Earlier this month, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste listed Chet Edwards (D-TX 17) as ‘hostile’ to the American taxpayer. 

U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards (D-Waco) is the most proficient earmarker, accounting for $378 million in pork for 201 projects in the budgets for fiscal years 2008, 2009 and 2010. Next is Rep. Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth) with 92 earmarks totaling $185 million.   (read more)

Regardless of party, American taxpayers are fed up with earmarks because of the inherent wastefulness of our hard earned money collected in taxes and then gratuitously doled out to certain projects and businesses of a Congressman’s choosing in the purchase of votes.

Are the taxpayers of TX-17 to live on their knees believing their well-being comes from a mere man? Or will we stand as men created in the image of our Creator with the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness so help us God?

This is the choice that Americans must make this November.
