A Surprising and Welcome Change...
How will those newly fiscally disciplined Republicans react? Jeff Flake, R-AZ is the staunchest opponent of earmarks. Yet because Dems did this, all he could do was say it wasn't enough. It's more than your party ever attempted to do, bitch! Get with the program.
Anything that reduces the influence that members of the Appropriations Committees have is fine by me. Earmarks are not driving the budgetary excesses of the last decade, but they really skew the intended process for spending tax dollars. I heartily applaud this move...
