Barack Obama and Joe Biden did NOT vote for the Bridge to Nowhere

as claimed by that McCain guy the other night on TV.

Mike Malloy just named the four Dems who did, and O and Joe were NOT among them.

ANOTHER lie!

sorry gately, that was another amendment

Obama and Biden Voted for Bridge to Nowhere (http://cdobs.com/archive/our-columns/obama-and-biden-voted-for-bridge-to-nowhere,1628/)



Now that Alaska is front and center in the news again, it is a good time to catch up on a favorite story, The Bridge to Nowhere, using the Washington Post US Congress Votes Database.

Though Gov. Palin originally supported the earmark spending on the Ketchikan bridge (“to nowhere), she eventually killed the project, chosing to spend Federal money on other infrasturcture programs.



However, Sen. Biden and Sen. Obama voted for funding the Bridge, even when given a second chance by Sen. Tom Coburn, who proposed shifting earmark funds to Katrina relief.

Sen. McCain did not vote on the Coburn Amendment, though he is on record as opposing the Ketchikan bridge earmark.

That was the part that Bayh, Conrad, Landrieu and Feingold supported.

The goperverts strategy is ..the bigger the lie the more you say it over and over again.
