Our politicians in congress are really funny. Now they are talking about banning Earmarks for 2 years. Why not just ban them PERIOD? They always want to just put their toe in the water when they are dealing with something good for the American People. When they come up with something that will be detrimental they just do a cannon ball all the way into the deep end of the water.
Banning earmarks won’t solve our fiscal problems, but it will be a first step toward being honest and transparent with the American People. We want them to ban earmarks quickly and then get on to bigger and more productive spending reductions. When Congress starts thinking more about what is good for America and for The People and less about getting elected they may become good public servants.
If they would do what is correct for America We The People will reelect them. We are sick and tired of them constantly running for re-election. And if they would practice this concept of spending their time doning a good job for America and The People (what a novel idea) just think of the money, graft and corruption that could be eliminated.
