Congressman Bill Sali put out a campaign commercial that shows why he's the best Congressman ever. Here it is:
Bill Sali courageously points out that he voted against over $1.1 trillion in government spending; he got these numbers from the Congressional Research Service, and just coincidentally was able to use them in his commercial three days later. While Socialists will probably complain that he used taxpayer-funded resources to come up with numbers just to use in a campaign commercial, all true Patriots know that he'll make a lot of non-political uses of that report, such as... well, those uses are so obvious that I don't even have to write them down.
Just imagine how much the government would have spent if Bill Sali hadn't bravely voted against the bills! We see from his report (invaluable to future Presidential historians) that he voted against $1.16 trillion in spending, and voted for $835 billion in funding for the military. Since the federal government is spending about $2.9 trillion this year, and about $900 billion of that is for Social Security and interest on the debt, this means that Congress passed about $2 trillion dollars in spending.
Had Liberal Larry Grant been elected in 2006, he would have voted for all this spending, so Congress would have spend the amount Bill Sali voted for and voted against, which is about... 1.16 trillion plus 835 billion... carry the one... $1.995 trillion. Which, as you can see, is much more than the amount Congress actually spent. The numbers don't lie!
