Boehner Pulls Earmarks; Ron Paul Won't

Boehner, albeit 16 years late, figures out that the Revolution might have consequences.

House minority leader John Boehner has sent a letter to Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman James Oberstar directing him to strike all Republican requested earmarks from the Water Resources Development Act reauthorization bill being drafted by the committee...

On the other hand, there's Ron Paul and some other addicts, collapsed in an alley with the vermin.

Despite being directed to withdraw their requested earmarks, four members of the GOP caucus have refused to do so: Anh “Joseph” Cao (La.), Henry Brown (S.C.), Don Young (Alaska) and Ron Paul (Texas).

I recall the sentiment "Throw ALL of them out!!" which seems to be endemic in the small-business community.

Boehner must have heard the hoofbeats of the Four Horses. Paul, Cao, Brown, and Young are obviously deaf.
