color me shocked!

Currently there's a big debate in congress over ending earmarks. Some members of congress want to end them because from time to time earmarks aren't used on things like improving mass transit or parks but instead used on bridges to nowhere. As expected,some members of congress who oppose the idea of earmarks have no problem taking earmarks. Senators such as Lindsey Graham,Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn are all opposed to earmark spending but have earmarks in bills currently being debated. Earlier today senator Cornyn went on fox news to talk about his 16 million dollars worth of earmarks.
