Dems Put Barbara Lee On Appropriations

From the Bay Area Mercury News:

Barbara Lee named to House Appropriations Committee

Thu, Dec. 14, 2006

Congresswoman Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, was named to the House Appropriations Committee Wednesday, Lee’s office reported.

Lee will be one of five California Democrats on the Appropriations Committee, which is in charge of setting the specific expenditures of money by the government, according to Lee’s office.

`I look forward to working with my fellow Californians on the committee to ensure that our state is getting the federal resources we deserve,” Lee said in a statement. `This committee assignment puts me in a better position than ever to continue to fight for and serve the people of California’s 9th District.”

Subcommittee positions will be decided in January, according to Lee’s office.

Great. The Democrats have in effect replaced a thief ("Cold Cash" Jefferson, who was removed from the Ways And Means Committee) with an America-hating lunatic.

Well, as long the Congressional Black Caucus is happy.
