But Republicans like earmarks"Our ship is going down. Boy, this Bud tastes good."
After getting whooped by Democrats on Election Day, you'd think House Republicans might try something new like practicing what they preach. The would-be scions of limited government, however, again refused [to] abandon earmarks, according to CQPolitics.
"For the second year in a row, the House GOP caucus Thursday rejected an effort to limit its members’ requests for special projects, or earmarks, in this case a short-term moratorium.
"The vote again exposed fissures among GOP conservatives and could undercut one of the party’s signature themes, limited government." (link)
For the love of God.
