« Rudy Giuliani flames out | Main | SOTU "average" tax cut stat »

January 29, 2008


The cost of earmarks is a relatively small part of the budget, but I consider them extremely important, because:

1. They have been growing rapidly n the last 20 years. There's no limit to how much more they will grow if they're not stopped.

2. As the Times perhaps implies, the use of earmarks to reward donors is close to legalized corruption.
