Of Democrats and Earmarks

On January 7, 2007, in General, by Neil Stevens

I’ve been saying for some time that the conservative focus on earmarked pork has been badly misplaced. So now when Democrats talk about attacking earmarks, I think they’re playing politics.

If they restrict earmarks, but then over the next two years do their best to increase spending, they’ll still be able to go to the voters and say “After years of massive increases in earmarked spending by corrupt Republicans, which even other Republicans hated, the Democratic Congress did what they couldn’t, and reduced earmarks by 50% in one year. We are the true fiscal conservatives.”

Keep your eye on the ball, guys.
