Turzai double dipping taxpayers

One of the hardest thing about using the media to grandstand like Rep. Turzai has since his first failed run for Congress in 1998, is it can often times be hard to not contradict yourself.

CasablancaPA is a blog that doesn't even try to pretend to be objective, but they still usually have some interesting facts that they bring to the table. Their newest post points out how much Turzai has collected in Per Diems while having taxpayers foot the bill for meals. I suggest you check out the BLOG for yourself to see all the hypocrisy that Turzai is involved in.

I also would like to point out some other hypocritical things that Turzai has been involved in:

He has railed against WAM money, then sent a political mailer that said "Thanks a million" as he bragged about all the WAM money he has brought back to the district.

He has labeled any tax plan that Democrats have introduced as tax shifts, yet he proposed a tax shift in 2006 that would have raised sales tax in Allegheny County to at least 8%.

He loves to say that he voted against the payraise because elected officials shouldn't benefit from the taxpayers. However, Rep. Turzai's wife owns a large medical practice in the North Hills. Turzai fights for medical malpractice subsidies that have most likely put more money in his family's pocket than any payraise.

That is your defense? You can't even defend anything about Turzai other than 'he is a great man?'

Just another Republican childish diversion that indicates that ANON 9:49 is unable to articulate a reasonably argument to convince others and has to resort to name calling.

I would enjoy an actual debate from a Republican in the comments on this blog, but all we have received so far is name calling and anger.
