You Go 110th Congress!

At last a really good, a great, idea!.... "Democrats Freeze Earmarks for Now."

"Democratic leaders declared a temporary moratorium on special-interest provisions known as earmarks as they attempt to cope with a budget crisis left by the outgoing Republican-led 109th Congress." (WaPo)

The hordes of blood-sucking D.C. lobbyists worst nightmare.... "an accountable, above-board, transparent process for funding decisions and put an end to the abuses...." declared incoming chairmen of the House and Senate Appropriations committees, Rep. David Obey (D-WI) and Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV).

This is exactly the kind of action the electorate is looking for from the new Democratic leadership! We, the long-ignored taxpaying electorate, salute you!
