Butch put his foot down on earmarks, it's about time.
The Rep's have put through a record number of them and now they are ready to put a stop to the practice so the "Dem's majority" has to play in a bi-partisan way. Washinton is such hypocritical place, both sides of the isle.
"Why are you willing to take so much & leave others in need...just because you can?"
Whilst listening to all of about 10 minutes of the SOTU, I must've heard about 10 'earmark' references. It's one of those things you know vocab-wise, but when you hear it so many times you begin to question the meaning of the word after awhile.
(if I can't get earmarks for my corrupt friends, then there will be no earmarks)
That a direct quote from ol' "our troops killed iraqis in cold blood" john murtha?
