So now, after a YEAR and A HALF of CUTTING Government, you want Governments help in spending to make jobs so that you’ll look good to your voters?
But wouldn’t that mean that the Government DOES create jobs?
What’s that word I’m looking for.
‘Hypocrisy alert: House Republican freshmen are begging their leaders to bring back a certain type of earmark so that they can help companies back home in an election year’.
‘In a letter to Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, 65 House Republican freshmen — or roughly three-quarters of the class — asked that the House consider a miscellaneous tariff bill jampacked with special provisions to suspend duties on various foreign goods, even though it runs counter to the earmark ban Republicans campaigned on in 2010 and instituted when they took power’.
‘The push is a sign that freshmen who arrived in Washington talking up their anti-pork principles are now worried about what — if anything — they’ll have to show constituents when they hit the campaign trail. And, in typical Washington fashion, they think they’ve found a loophole that will get them past the ban’.
‘It’s a tough call for GOP leaders, and they haven’t yet figured out what to do: keep faith with their promise or bend to the will of freshmen who like the sound of an earmark ban a heck of a lot more than the reality’.
