Congressman Jeff Miller Contradicts Himself in PNJ Interview

The PNJ interviewed Congressman Jeff Miller and he gave two contradictory statements when it comes to his support of the earmarking process.

At first, Miller makes himself out to be a Congressman that wants to end the use of earmarks. “I would like to see a moratorium on all earmarks”.

Then, the PNJ reveals that Miller brought 6 million dollars in federal money to his district. Miller contradicts his earlier statement by saying that, “not all earmarks are necessarily bad”.

Most of the money went to defense contractors in Miller’s district.

Hey Jeff, if you want a moratorium on earmarks, you’ll also need to put an end to the pork that is going to your district; you can’t have your cake and eat it to.
