Kit Bond to Retire

Sen. Kit Bond (R-Missouri) announced he will not be seeking reelection, a Washington Post blog reports.

As far as conservatives are concerned, this could be a good thing. Bond is an ardent Big Government supporter who for years has refused to back any fiscal restraint at the useless Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

When Republicans had a majority in the Senate, Bond consistently defended his turf as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s panel on HUD. Every oversight hearing he would chastise whoever was HUD secretary for not wanting to flush more taxpayer dollars down the toilet.

Hasta la vista, Sen. Bond.
