Diane Black voted for pork and waste

Congresswoman Diane Black voted for wasting $3 billion dollars on a pork project in Speaker John Boehner’s Ohio district. This project was an unnecessary and unneeded engine built by GE (who happens to own MS/NBC); every branch of the United States military AND even the Bush administration said it was a complete waste. She refused to vote to pull its funding thereby condoning the continuation of this pork project.

Watch this brief 2 minute video about the engine and why it isn't needed:
