    Claire is just desperate. Her numbers back here at home are not looking too good so as usual she is pandering. Look at her record of votes if you want the truth.

    Billions needed to upgrade America’s leaky water infrastructure
    At first glance, the pizza-size hole that popped open when a heavy truck passed over a freshly paved District street seemed fairly minor.

    Sarah Steelman is going to defeat McCaskill, and Claire knows it.

    Like Romney, she'll say anything...stay tuned, she'll renounce Obamacare by mid election.

    Steelman for U.S. Senate:

    EVERYONE knows that it is a problem and that it is only going to get more expensive down the road yet we just cannot develop the political will to do it. This is something that should never be a political football yet it is. Maybe if a few bridges collapse the budget hawks will decide Americans are worth it.

    We have plenty for the MIC, maybe it's time they (gasp) suck it up like the rest of us. That's what this is about anyway, that cash buys a penny's worth of Afghan infrastructure and 99 cents worth of graft and theft.

    Claire has already backed off healthcare on news programs here in KC. She is nothing but a whore, willing to sell her opinion to the wind as often as need be. A terrible senator.

    Here's an idea....How 'bout not spending it at all, rather than quibble over who can piss it away better?

    Just a thought.
