Earmarks

Posted by olemike on 10/28/2010

If the Republicans take control of the House, one of the first things they need to do is eliminate earmarks – at least for the next two years.  Yes, yes, I know, Many of you will say that earmarks are only a small percentage of the deficit.  However, if we cannot stop earmarks, do we really think we can tackle the extremely difficult choices that will be required to shrink the deficit?  If they continue to spend like a drunkard sailor (which they did during the Bush administration), we will see the Democrats retake Congress in 2012.  Heaven help us if that happens.
