Representative Kline Update 

We are so fortunate to have two very conscientious representatives in Washington, DC:
Representative Michele Bachmann and Representative John Kline.

Congressman John Kline focuses on issues related to our military (he is a retired Marine Colonel), education, ethics and our money. According to his latest report, the House of Representatives passed legislation to block the release of the second half of the $700,000,000,000 passed last fall. Why? Turns out the money wasn't spent as it was intended. Representative Kline realized this and did something about it.

As he states, "I opposed the release of more of your hard-earned money because we have seen no plan for how additional funds will be spent or how Congress intends to get the federal government out of the private sector."

While it is true the pork-driven Democrats passed the hogfest of all pork "legislation," (almost $1,000,000,000,000) not a single Republican supported this expanse of permanent government programs. Saddling subsequent generations with this level of debt is simply unfair and socially unjust.
