    Westmoreland (R-GA) 0 0
    Wilson (R-SC) 15 $23,334,000

    TOTAL 764 $1,049,783,150--That is over 1 BILLION dollars in earmarks!

    NOTE--that this report is dated December 2010--and before the new freshman tea party members were seated on Jan. 20, 2011.

    The Tea Party in this country is being blamed for this. It is well noted in the below linked article that the 112th congress has unanimously voted against all earmarks--and it is noted that Michelle Bachmann and her 13 member tea party caucass did not ask for any earmarks.

    However--if your Republican congressman/woman is listed on the above list--you may want to give them an earful. Especially if they promised you that they would not ask for any earmarks.

    Meh...

    Most earmarks are monies that would've been sent to states in block grants anyways.

    Best tend to the overall bloat of the budget in the first place.

    It doesn't matter it was MONEY--that we don't have to spend. And these Republicans that asked for them--knowing that we don't have the money--should be addressed. Once more--I am more than a little ticked that every left wing thread--like the Huffington post is blaming the tea party for this.

    Why? Do you want to put them on a map with little peace signs to mark their districts?

    LIAR!!! These Congressmen are not members of the TEA Party Caucus. Please read the OP, this time slowly, out loud and for comprehension. Sound out the tough words, or ask mommy to help.
