GOP leader McConnell will back ban on earmarks

Yeah, the GOP has to keep up their facade of smaller government. They all know that earmarks account for such a tiny fraction of government spending it doesn’t really matter. It is like taking a grain of salt out of the salt shaker and proclaiming that you’ve helped reduce sodium intake. If the GOP ever decides to cut warfare and welfare spending, I will really be surprised. Really surprised. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/15/AR2010111504511.html
