Last Vote by Senate to ban Earmarks!

The last time the Senate voted on banning earmarks was a vote on tabling Senator DeMint’s Amendment 3454 to establish an earmark moratorium for fiscal years of 2010 and 2011. The vote was held on March 16, 2010.

68 Senators voted to table, 29 voted not to table and 3 Senators didn’t vote.

They obviously didn’t get the message then, let’s hope they begin to understand the message of “We The People” sometime very soon. We are watching them closely.

Retired, but still spending an inordinant amount of time thinking about all things big and small. I am proud to be a strong constitutional conservative. I am also proud to have been married over 56 years to my wonderful wife, Louise. I continue to be amazed that she has put up with me for such a long time, but have been happy that she decided to do so.
