What Was That About 'Emergency' Spending Again, George?

I noticed on the State of Ohio Blogger Alliance feed yesterday, a post from Eye on the Statehouse that praised George Voinovich for asking for an amendment to curb "emergency" spending.

So imagine my surprise when I saw this piece over at The Courier.com with Senator Voinovich proudly declaring:
"I will continue to fight to make federal funds available to aid Ohioans in their disaster recovery efforts."
Disaster recovery is important, but calling yourself a "deficit hawk" and then securing millions in grants is just not right. Senator, either you are a steward of the taxpayer's money or you aren't. You can not have it both ways.

Senator, you just joined the Democrats in voting to raise the taxes of everybody making over $32,000 a year. You have joined the Democrats in redefining the word "rich" to include average Joes like your constituents here in Ohio. Ohio, you know, they place you are supposed to represent?

Fellow Ohioans, I hope you remember that you do have a choice. You do not have to be represented by liars like George Voinovich. You do not have to keep sending a tax and spender like George Voinovich back to Washington. You do have a choice! Remember, by 2010, I will only be half as stale as George Voinovich is right now...
