Update: Rangel says he was not trying to insult a crappy state like Mississippi. Just like John Kerry was not insulting our stupid troops.
With the new shift of power in Washington, New York will soon reap the rewards of a Democratic Congress. What I mean is that the large sucking sound that emanates from your paycheck will soon fund more pork projects for New York.
That could mean more money from Homeland Security which would go towards our police and first responders to protect New York, not spent securing the Soybean Festival in Martin, TN.
Who am I to put words in the mouths of our honorable politicians? Take it away Charlie Rangel, a politician from New York who has the tact of a hydrogen bomb.
From The NY Times
“It’s not just committees — our influence within the House Democratic caucus will grow enormously,” Mr. Rangel said in an interview.Yeah. And Alabama, well they can just go to hell! You tell them Rangel.
To that end, he sketched out an expansive federal agenda: Teaming up with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on gun control, passing new tax incentives for urban job programs, and redirecting federal money to New York in return for the outsize tax collections that the federal government makes here.
“Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi?” Mr. Rangel said.
Ok America, remember that you only get what you pay for. And that appears to be a 10 year old bully who's now set to be the chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.
