  • Not when the Senate majority Leader tells us that earmarks are an obligation.

  • No. Will they put it back up in January, when it stands a (slightly) higher chance of passing?

  • WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans' ban on earmarks – money included in a bill by a lawmaker to benefit a home-state project or interest – was short-lived. Only three days after GOP senators and senators-elect renounced earmarks, Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl, the No. 2 Senate Republican, got himself a whopping $200 million to settle an Arizona Indian tribe's water rights claim against the government

  • Nope. This was predicted.

    I don't think it will pan out in Jan. but i am curious to see if there is real dialouge or just posturing.

    Probably not. Like Dems Republicans love earmarks.  They have to pretend to not like them have a vote while Dems are still in the majority knowing it won't pass then will drop the whole subject hoping to distract the lemmings in their own party with something else. We are screwed either way.
