    So AGAIN--who are the biggest spenders in Washington D.C? DEMOCRATS.

    Bravo, however now is a piss poor time to be reigning in earmarks when government should be further stimulating the economy.

    People love their earmarks, hate other people's. The whole thing is a canard for brainwashed dupes. There have always been earmarks, and there always will be. Another name for them is federal projects- they should be good projects, is all. This is pure pub electioneering, MORE paralysis.

    Further stimulating the economy-B.S.--a lot of this packed with pork nonsense--that doesn't create a job. In fact--the 450 BILLION dollars with over 9,000 earmarks in it--that Obama signed off while he was stating we were in the worst economic crisis since the great depression--and this 1 week after he signed off on the 868 BILLION dollar stimulus bill--according to your statement we should be in JOBS HOG HEAVEN right now--LOL

    The OP already mentioned that, deanie.


    But you didn't want us to notice that the Dems asked for $51.7 billion, did you?

    So you then only disagree with earmarks when the opposite side of the isle are asking for them--when you just found out that Democrats asked for 50 times the amount that repubicans requested--now you're O.K. with earmarks--:lol: RIGHT
