You read that right: while Patrick McHenry is “fighting for” the 10th District, he has managed to vote for more than $16.8 million dollars in pork, more than 170 other Congressmen. More than Democratic nutcases Dennis Kucinich (McHenry voted for 52% more) and Henry Waxman (24% more)! The following members of the House — including many other nutcase Democrats — voted less:

Remember, not a few years ago McHenry tried to have the government spend over $129,000 on a “Perfect Christmas Tree” pork barrel project — a project to give money to people who make Christmas Tree decorations. McHenry may pretend to be a Republican, but he sure as hell spends like a Democrat — or even worse.
