GOP Cuts Back Almost 50% On Earmarks

GOP cuts pork from spending diet plan.  Washington Examiner.

Wow!  At least some folks in Congress are keeping their word on scaling back that massive spending of taxpayer dollars for home district pet projects that they promised.

The first spending bill to begin moving through Congress since House Republicans pledged to forgo earmarks shows the vow is working: The bill contains nearly 50 percent less in pork-barrel spending than last year’s version.

Now if only, it could stay that way.
