Senate and House Vote to Continue Earmark Favor Factory

Despite a surge of grassroots and political support, a one-year moratorium on pork-barrel earmarks fell short in the Senate last night. Senator Jim DeMint and a bipartisan coalition of his colleagues offered an amendment to ban earmarks for the 2009 fiscal year, but the amendment was defeated 29-71. Senator DeMint deserves credit for taking the lead in the Senate on this important issue.

Pork Dieting? Earmark Rhetoric Does Not Reflect the Money Trail Reality

BY Patrick Temple-West

WASHINGTON – For all the tough talk in Washington about eliminating earmarks, lawmakers are still clinging to the popular practice of diverting federal funds to pet projects to the tune of $39.4 billion. Earlier this week, Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Hillary Clinton, N.Y., and Barack Obama, Ill., announced they would co-sponsor a one-year moratorium on all congressional earmarks during the fiscal 2009 appropriations cycle.

The Obama Spendorama

On Wednesday afternoon, Senator Wayne Allard (R-CO) introduced an amendment to the Senate Budget Bill. The amendment, which he called "The Obama Spendorama" went down to defeat, with Allard himself voting against it, but it brought an important point to the forefront of the budget debate. You can read my entire discussion of the amendment at HumanEvents.com.

Will Congress Pass Earmark Reform?

These remarks by the Clinton and Obama campaigns are certainly good news on the earmark front, but, unfortunately, the overall outlook for reform still isn't good.

Net Neutrality Regulation Hurts Families

The Christian Coalition of America is an important voice for pro-family values. However, in recent testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, the group threw its support behind a new “Washington-knows-best” regulatory scheme that would not only stifle innovation and growth, but also limit the ability of America’s parents to protect their children from objectionable and dangerous Internet content.

The DeMint Earmark Amendment - It Fails

Well, after many hours of waiting and some creative politicking by those on the left, the DeMint Earmark Amendment finally made its way to the floor. In an early surprise, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain all made their way back to the floor to cast their votes. The very fact that they came back for this vote should serve as a wakeup call to those who have remained on the fence regarding how they should have voted on this amendment.
