Stupak Announces $726,409 For Airports

A press release from Representative Bart Stupak:

STUPAK ANNOUNCES $726,409 FOR AIRPORTS IN ALPENA, DELTA AND CHIPPEWA COUNTIES

March 19, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak (D-Menominee) announced three airports in northern Michigan have received grants totaling $726,409 for airport maintenance and improvements.  The funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration.

“This federal funding will help these airports better provide critical services to communities in northern Michigan,” Stupak said.  “I am pleased the FAA has made this investment in our local airports and the individuals and businesses they serve.”

Alpena County Regional Airport received a grant of $85,500 to acquire friction measuring equipment, specifically a decelermeter and tow vehicle, to replace equipment that has worn out.

Delta County Airport in Escanaba received a grant of $179,209 to install a 10 foot perimeter fence to enhance security and prevent wildlife from entering the airport.

The Chippewa County International Airport near Sault Ste. Marie received a grant of $461,700 to install lighted signs on Runway 16/34 and make repairs to the pavement to meet marking requirements and maintain structural integrity.

This funding is provided to the FAA through the regular federal appropriations process and is awarded through competitive grants. 

It’s just a coincidence, no doubt. And there is surely a lot more to come.

At least we like to think that our politicians aren’t being bought and sold at such low prices.

By the way, have we mentioned lately that there is no such thing as a ‘moderate Democrat’?

There are just Democrats.

    There’s more to it than this.

    Eventually we will find out how many millions Mr. Stupak is putting in his pocket.

    It will be a gigantic number.

    …..”have we mentioned lately that there is no such thing as a ‘moderate Democrat’?……”

    Nor is there such a thing as a Pro-Life Democrat……..or a fiscally conservative Democrat. Or for that matter, any type of Democrat. The only terms that describe the type of persons who once labeled themselves Democrat are;

    Socialists
    Marxists
    Communists
    Fascists
    Stalinists
    Leninists
    Maoists

    What a “show piece accomplishment”. What a banner chunk of legislation.

    It’s so good that these shameless, thieving cowards had to use every corrupted and twisted trick they could to get it passed.

    These people are plain and simple crooks and thiefs, as well as enemies of our Constitution and way of life. In some cases, hapless possibly; but no less shameless enemies.

    He will go to his grave ruing the day he sold his sole to an “Ideology” from the Halfrican president.

    I’d only be surprised if he DIDN’T get something for his turning coat.
