evil earmarks

Rate this topic

Earmarks under Obama had to be stopped because they fostered corruption and were costly to the taxpayer.When the reps took control over congress they said we must never allow this process to be used again.  I agree with this assessment but now that the wallet is under their control many reps yesterday (going all of the way to the top )said the process of using them can serve a vital function and the usage can help get things passed-members will have incentive to vote so they can get their pet projects.  I would argue this is filling the swamp back up and they should NOT bring earmarks back-what say you?

You can't have one of the biggest tax cuts in history and a massive infrastructure bill at the same.

Let's throw in some earmarks while we're at it.

Who the hell is in charge of the checkbook?

Just more proof that the only difference between the Reps and the Dems is where their respective earmarks go.

A Pol is a Pol is a Pol. Meet the new boss. The same as the old boss. Same as it ever was. The same as it has been since the dawn of government. The same as it always will be.
