White House Backs Off of Obama Earmarks Pledge
Posted by Jim Harper
*** begin quote ***
In the state of the union speech last night, President Obama said with great force:
“If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it.”
*** end quote ***
Wow, it this his version of: “read my lips; no new taxes” or “i did not have sex with that woman”?
Earmark is really easy.
Anything that doesn’t say “ALL AMERICANS” or “NO AMERICAN” is an earmark.
Some one should start a countdown clock!
