A local activist group is pushing Republican congressman Bill Young to start siding with the poor and middle class. Yesterday they took their activism to the Science Applications International Corporation in St. Petersburg. Itâ€™s a company the Florida Consumer Action Network, or FCAN says has received millions of taxpayer dollars. So Greg Stem, along with about 40 other protesters, asked Young yesterday, where are the earmarks for the 99%?
According to FCAN, The National Forensic Science Technology Center , which employed Congressman Young's other son Billy, received nearly $40 million dollars in tax payer money from 2000 to 2010.
