Hey Big Spender
With no other important issues facing the country, the president is going to focus on the all-important issue of earmarks in his SOTU speech. Nice of him to bring this up while he’s on the way out the door.
Even conservatives say it’s not enough.
Senator Jim DeMint, Republican of South Carolina, a fierce critic of earmarks, said the president’s action “may be too late, since Congress may not send him many spending bills this year…The president missed a historic opportunity to stop thousands of wasteful earmarks. The proposed executive order will only stop secret earmarks in future bills, but it protects over 10,000 non-binding earmarks requested for this year.”
In honor of the ever-increasing deficits and debts brought to you by the co-called conservative Bush administration, here is a little number from “Sweet Charity”.
