McCain: No Incumbent Is Safe In 2012

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) has predicted the rise of a third party in the 2012 elections that will not tolerate the kind of spending included in the recent $915 billion omnibus spending package.

McCain has taken issue with the fiscal year 2012 omnibus, pointing out that in defense spending alone it included $3.5 billion in spending the Department of Defense didn’t want or need. The Senator said the money is simply to pad the pockets of contractors who are friends of lawmakers, according to The Hill.

McCain said that he believes during the 2012 election, incumbents from both parties will be in electoral danger.

“I believe that for long enough we have done this, for long enough the American people, who are now in a more dire state then they have been since the Great Depression, are fed up with spending,” McCain said. “I say to all my colleagues… I think in the next election no incumbent is safe.”
