Republican Representative Steven LaTourette, an 18-year House veteran, said the earmark ban “has affected discipline” within the party. “You can’t get 218 votes (out of 242 Republican House members) and part of that has to be if you can’t give people anything (earmarks), you can’t take anything away from them.”
Oh, goodie!! Here's the plain-language version of that crap:
It’s not about the $500,000 earmark. It’s about the $500,000 earmark that is used to buy off a conservative vote for a $1 trillion omnibus or some other terrible transformational legislation.
We sent this slime to Congress. It's time to apply a lot of bleach. Direct-spray is a good method,.
