West Virginia is a red state. Probably a reputhug didn't want the poorest to receive any mo ey and get used to the idea that the government is there to serve the people and not the corporations.

More disgusting crap from those who hate the government, but love the money. I just threw up a little.

No one hates the government. This is a good example of government waste in spending with no accountability.
10:07 PM on 07/06/2011
Well, the audit would imply that there is accountability after the fact. It's a good program badly mis-managed by the state.

This just in: Obama say's stimulus didn't work so well because GOP wouldn't give up enough money. Evil Teabaggers and their darn stinginess.

This sounds like fraud and misuse of funds, and these are crimes. Prosecution of crooked politicians must be enforced. Merely promising to do better is not good enough.

It must be nice to be well connected. It is a shame that the program was mismanaged because winterization work for the poor and needy is an excellent investment. Not only do you save on heating bills but we would use fewer fossil fuels. Good to hear my old friends at Taxpayers for Common $ense are still at it. Excellent outfit.

This is what you get when you trust states to do things. And companies don't do any better.

The old "Prince of Pork". Sad part is, he was proud of that nickname.
