Americans are fed up with Congress's spending except when it comes to their Rep. delivering chunks of pork to their district. That's the same way Murtha's constituents feel and that is why they have re-elected him over and over and over. Bud Shuster knows that and so does his son.

And you people continue to re-elect them because they have an (R) after their name. You deserve them.

Wrong! People continue to reelect their own..they bring the earmarks home. We're all being hypocritical when we deny we do it.

When was the last time you didn't vote for an incumbent? I never do out of protest. I'd write in my neighbor's cat before I'd vote for an incumbent. There isn't one that isn't a liar.

If you are a retired civil servant, of on Social Security, what COLA you getting? What raise did congress get? Bet it's better than yours. Their perks went up as well.

Just wish we had an honest choice in elections.
