Letter: Murray secures funding for WSU, votes for herself

February 17, 2014 

Sen. Patty Murray couldn't contain herself. She had to add some "pork" to the new funding bill. She added $5 million for a new research laboratory at Washington State University Tri-Cities for study of aircraft jet fuel.

That way she gets credit from the west side jet aircraft crowd and from the east side for her benevolence in thinking about us and hoping we will vote for her too. No matter the country is going broke with Democrats spending to buy votes and putting our country into bankruptcy. She is the leader supposedly of this Democratic financial budget deal. She just couldn't help herself. What's $5 million?
