    Tea Party Caucus Takes $1 Billion In Earmarks - Hotline On Call


    Have you integrity to denounce them?


    Members of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus may tout their commitment to cutting government spending now, but they used the 111th Congress to request hundreds of earmarks that, taken cumulatively, added more than $1 billion to the federal budget.

    According to a Hotline review of records compiled by Citizens Against Government Waste, the 52 members of the caucus, which pledges to cut spending and reduce the size of government, requested a total of 764 earmarks valued at $1,049,783,150 during Fiscal Year 2010, the last year for which records are available.

    There are not really "earmarks" if you refuse to call them earmarks.

    Problem solved.

    Wow, I'm glad to see that you gave a whole 2 minutes for "shitlips" to respond. How very generous of you.

    Don't you think you should probably give people just a little time to read the link you gave? Or are we just to take your word for what it says?
