How hard did you have to twist to make that compo??? The stimulus funds went to the INDIAN RESERVATION, not the plumber. Are indians back to crapping in the bushes now???
And this guy, as a plumber, is one out of 1,000, owning multiple plumbing companies and all. Most plumbers are sole proprietors with a helper and they don't make a lot of money...though it feels like it when you have an emergency over the weekend...

People do vote, and those votes are counted.
You bet! That's exactly right! They are counted. So why is it, do you suppose, we have this little thing called the Electoral College? This whole presidential election thing is a scam, always has been. I look forward to the day when my vote is not only counted, but actually 'counts'. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

No idea what you are talking about.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A Republican congressional candidate who has railed against federal spending has been awarded around $370,000 in federal stimulus money distributed through a pair of Oklahoma Indian tribes.

A review of stimulus spending by The Associated Press shows companies owned by Markwayne Mullin received the money under contracts with the Cherokee and Muscogee (Creek) nations.

The payments were for plumbing at tribal housing projects and funded through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

OK - I'll slow it down for you. The stimulus funds WENT TO THE INDIAN RESERVATION.... to fix their plumbing. They could've hired anybody. The funds did not go to the plumbing company. It's rather simple if you think about it.

He received stimulus money and he knew it. Very little stimulus money went directly to any business. They go to some agency, etc. who hires the contractors, etc. But every project I've seen makes it clear that it is stimulus money. Big signs at the job site and Oh, yes, the RFP spells it out clearly. I know, because I've responded to a couple of them.

So you are right that the money went first to the Tribe, but that is a distinction without a difference. The money came from the stimulus package and this guy took it gladly. His defense that he did not know is utter garbage. Any project that was part of the stimulus made a very big deal of the source of the funding.

And was he running for office then??? I doubt it. So he was simply a businessman looking for work to keep his business profitable. Big difference between that and Obama's butt-buddies that took green stimulus money, paid thmselves well, then folded up...all on our dime.
Is he being a little hypocritical??? Maybe a bit. But at least he was out there running a business and employing people, which as you SHOULD notice, tends to be what conservatives do....the left?? Not so much. Lawyers and academia 98% of the time from the left.

Requests from constituents are relayed via a congressman's staff. The congressman doesn't sit down and road block requests from his/her constituents. It's not the same as a congressman making his own request. It makes for a good game of 'gotcha' but its disingenuous.

You guys are so twisted up trying to disprove this point that you have no idea what you are talking about. The fact remains, this guy, who is an vocal critic of the stimulus received stimulus money as payment for work he did. He knew it at the time and he was also a vocal critic at the time. Him running for office has nothing to do with it.

He WORKED for it. It wasn't handed to him as a chrony pay off, then go file bankruptcy while you're living in the islands off tax payer money. Sorry, you lose on this one.

No, certainly not as twisted up as you are trying to prove your point. You are trying to play the Kevin Bacon game.

No, his constituent did. If you could prove the constituent then hired his company as a payback then you would have something. But congressional offices just pass through these requests. This being an Indian tribe, they may not have even passed it through the office. It looks like it was distributed by Department of Housing and Urban Development.
