The John Murtha Airport

Yesterday, I offered an amendment on the House floor to the bill that funds all Federal Aviation Administration activities for the next 4 years. The amendment, in the obtuse world of Congressional parlance, is called a “motion to recommit.” Rather than tell you about it, I will let the roughly 8 minutes of debate speak for itself, and I have included the clip below.

The amendment failed by a vote of 263-154. Waste and corruption are alive and well in Washington.

But you already knew that.
