If we can let's not make this one political! I don't care who had the most, or least or what they are for!
Here is the question: On a FOX news report the following quote "Everybody hates earmarks till they are in their district, and then they are for them", are you against them?
I'm against earmarks, weather they are in my district or not.
The problem, evidently, is how earmarks came about. Seems like when Congress passes a budget item like health and welfare, it is the President that determines where the money actually goes. Congress started 'earmarking' funds so that the President would have to spend the money in their district or for their project.
So would you vote for a politician that pledged not to earmark funds, and to vote against all others?
