A Congressman from Alaska? What a load of dung. Why is he interested in a dirt road in Florida? Kick Backs of course. Investigate, Investigate, and lock this fool up. Tell him to keep his big purple (whisky drinking) nose out of Florida's business.

The House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate were not created to act as a Federal Bureau of Investigation nor as a Justice Department. All "investigations" to these people mean is a swell chance for me to be on TV and pontificate from behind my little balcony and make political points to enhance my re-election by looking "important". The House and the Senate have tremendously more important things to worry about than a GD highway.

The U.S. Senate, it seems, is selective when it comes to calling on the Justice Department to investigate wrong doing. Where is the call for an investigation of Diane Feinstein for awarding defence contracts, while chairwoman of the Senate Subcommittee on Military Construction Appropriations, to Perini Corp. and URS Corp., both owned by her husband, Richard C. Blum. Feinstein's subcommittee had jurisdiction over medical treatment for veterans long before the poor conditions were exposed at Walter Reed Army Hospital. Feinsteins family was pocketing huge amounts of money while ignoring the plight of wounded American soldiers.

America has the best politicians MONEY can buy. They're self serving maggots who feed off the taxpayers. They have no shame, and they get rewarded with a healthy pension when they leave office, regardless of how they performed and served their State.

As an anti Republican I have to say this is a bipartisan problem. With this being a classic case of the cancer that infects our government.

These people are traitors to the American people and should be dealt with as such. If we make examples out of drug dealers by sending them to jail for life. We should do the same to the elected officials that are destroying this country.

As an American I agree.
