Um, excuse me, but isn't this the very same guy who says that Democrats are spending too much money? I guess that, when it's for your own district, the rules don't apply, right?Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell visited an Appropriations Committee hearing Wednesday to put pressure on the Energy Department to save jobs in Kentucky.
The Republican leader pressed Energy Secretary Steven Chu to save a uranium enrichment facility in western Kentucky run by USEC Inc. that does contract work for the federal government.

Repeat after me..... Hypocrite.
