CONSERVATIVE MIKE BRAUN CALLS ON OPPONENTS TO JOIN HIM IN DENOUNCING PORK-BARREL SPENDING
JASPER, IN – Businessman and conservative outsider Mike Braun today called on his opponents, Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, to join with him and denounce the news that House Republicans are considering bringing back the pork-barrel projects known as earmarks.
“Republicans ran on a promise to drain the swamp, and now they want to bring back the corrupt tool that led to multiple indictments and helped destroy voters’ faith in Republicans as good stewards of tax dollars?” said Braun. “My position on earmarks is this – I oppose them, I won’t take them, and I’ll do everything I can do eliminate them, even if that means offering amendments in the Senate to strike projects inserted by members of my own party.”
“Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer both serve in the House. They should join with me in denouncing and opposing any plan to bring earmarks back,” added Braun.
