REP. JOHN LUIGI MICA Trash-talks "Critics" of Billion Dollar Boondoggle, With 100% Cost Overruns
See below, where U.S. REP. JOHN LUIGI MICA trash-talks "critics" of cost overruns for the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, saying in haec verba: "The critics who complained about the size and cost of the CVC have been proven wrong," said Rep. John Mica of Florida, top Republican on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. With the 1 millionth visitor, he said, "this facility has alrady [sic] demonstrated its worth."
The Center was originally budgeted for $285 million.
The Center cost $621 million and was three years late.
Kudos to U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D-Florida) for exposing the waste, fraud and abuse. Cast asparagus at REP. JOHN LUIGI MICA for defending the waste, fraud and abuse associated with these vast cost overruns.
So much for JOHN LUIGI MICA's approach to mismanagement in our government. JOHN LUIGI MICA loves waste, fraud and abuse when it benefits his campaign contributors. JOHN LUIGI MICA is all for waste, fraud and abuse when it's proposed by REP. TOM DELAY and other Republicans.
That's why JOHN LUIGI MICA was rated "porker of the month" by Citizens Against Government Waste.
It's time to teach this porker a lesson and send him packing -- that's why we need Faye Armitage in Congress.
What do you reckon?
