Figures they agree with that creep Reid, whose made a killing in his bank account on these wonderful programs. Greed is good as long as you're a democrat of course.
    they created jobs temporary and long lasting jobs.

    It's not the 1% of pork that’s the problem, it's the billions of worthless bills filled with government waste that get passed because the congressman gets his pet project included.

    Why did Obama in his first term say "he would veto any bill that included pork projects"?

    Congress functioned a lot better when there were earmarks available. for 1% of the budget they forced folks to come together and talk vs. the worthless yelling that seems to be going on now.

    Sounds good to me. A lot of jobs are created via those earmarks.

    Harry Reid says bring back the pork-barrel spending


    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday that earmarks should be put back on the table as a tool for Congress, becoming the latest voice in a growing chorus to return to the days when pork-barrel spending dominated the annual appropriations process.

    “I have been a fan of earmarks since I got here the first day,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, told reporters. “Keep in mind, that’s what the country has done for more than 200 years, except for the brief period of time in recent years that we haven’t done these.”

    He and other supporters said earmarks were part of the founders’ vision of government and that they served to help get bills passed, making them an attractive antidote to the gridlock in Congress over the past four years.

    The public began to sour on earmarks after mammoth boondoggles such as the “bridge to nowhere,” which would have sent more than $300 million in taxpayers’ money to build a bridge to an Alaska island so residents could get to an airport without having to use a ferry service. The project ultimately was canceled, but it became a symbol of runaway pork-barrel spending.

    Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who would be in line to lead the Senate if Republicans win control of the chamber in November, is opposed to restoring earmarks, a spokesman said. Asked whether Mr. McConnell agreed with Mr. Reid that it was time to rethink the ban, his spokesman flatly said, “No.”
