Last Night a Documentary Exposing Kevin McCarthy’s Reckless Spending Won A 2014 RTC Dinner Award

June 13, 2014

One would think the GOP could find a better Majority Leader than Kevin McCarthy, a guy who was labeled as Congress’ worst offender when it comes to frivolous office spending in a news report that won an award at last night’s Radio and Television Correspondents Diner.

But apparently one would be wrong … just as it would be wrong to think this GOP is capable of learning anything from its mistakes at this point.


Via CSPAN- 1, guess what report won an award last night at the 2014 Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner last night? A report of Republican Kevin McCarthy’s big office spending, that’s what. The Washington Post says he’s going to ascend due to his “networking skills.”

That’s just a nice way of saying wasting tax payer dollars if you ask me. Check out this report from last June. The GOP has learned nothing from cantor’s defeat.

The House of Representatives spent nearly $2 million on coffee and food for events in and around the Capitol last year, and Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield, is one of the biggest spenders, according to a new report.

ABC News aired the report Tuesday night, basing it on data collected by the Sunlight Foundation, a watchdog group advocating government transparency.

Last night, they were even laughing about the thought that McCarthy may emerge as the new GOP majority Leader – approximately 32 mins into this  C-SPAN clip from last night.

This GOP seems determined to remain an embarrassment.

    Raul Labrador is making a run.

    It’ll be interesting to see how much support he gets.

    • creeper says:

      Labrador’s a weak-kneed RINO who favors more immigration.

      • Ragspierre says:

        No. He is not “weak-kneed”.

        But lots of very smart people favor more RATIONAL immigration laws for those wishing to come here legally.

        What, you DON’T…???

    K. McCarthy might be bad but Raul Labrador is for amnesty. He was a member of the “gang of eight” last yr and coauthored the amnesty bill that was defeated last yr. he is for amnesty and increases legal immigration. The economy is slow. We don’t need any more people and welfare recipients. Don’t vote for Raul Labrador ever.

    • Ragspierre says:

      You may want to check your “facts”.

      Labrador was a member of the “Group of Eight,” a bipartisan group of House members working on immigration reform legislation,[14] but on June 5, 2013, Labrador left the negotiations because he wanted language in the bill requiring that undocumented immigrants be responsible for their own health care costs.[15] Labrador said he would use his position on the House Judiciary Committee to pass immigration reform legislation. On June 18, 2013, he joined a majority of his Judiciary Committee colleagues in voting for the “SAFE Act” to bolster interior enforcement of immigration laws.[16] On June 19, 2013, he joined a majority of his Judiciary Committee colleagues in voting for the “AG Act” to improve the temporary agricultural guest worker program.

      That (obviously) is from Wiki, but check the primary sources.

      He is expressly NOT for “amnesty”.

      • creeper says:

        You are correct. He does not directly support amnesty. But he is on the record as being in favor of increased immigration.

        • Ragspierre says:

          I’m for increasing LEGAL immigration, which is now a system infamous for its long, cludgy delays and bureaucratic nonsense.

          One way you IMPROVE behavior that abides by the law is to make the law MORE “abidable”.
