Fellow Conservatives, Lend Me Your Earmarks



If you click on the above, you will see a ranking of Earmarks by Congressperson; the top of the list are the largest recipients, the bottom the smallest.

Guess who is near the top: Hillary "I will take on the Special Interests" Clinton

Obama? Near the bottom.

McCain? One of only five or six at ZERO.

The support of supply-siders Jack Kemp and Phil Gramm has not been enough to reassure some economic conservatives about the direction of economic policy in a McCain administration. Yet a look at Mr. McCain's record in Congress over the past 25 years demonstrates a tax-cutting pedigree at least as strong as, if not stronger than, Mitt Romney's or Mike Huckabee's (they both raised taxes as governors).
