If The Republicans Had Done This...

...they might still be in office.

That's right. The Dems are cutting THIS YEAR's earmarks. "Earmark" is governmentese for "unnecessary superfluous spending," aka "pork."

Why was this so hard to understand for republicans? If the base told them once, they told them 100,000 times that they were spending too much.

Maybe the GOP learned something from this election. The demoncrats definitely learned something: The GOP was spending too much. Not that the dems are averse to spending too much, but they want to stay in power, and cutting Gov't spending is a way to help themselves to their own personal (power) ends.
Democrats ... (gratuitous opinion aimed against republicans removed) ... will start by removing billions of dollars in lawmakers' pet projects next month.
But will it last? Well, at least until the next elections:
...(The Demoncrats) said lawmakers could re-apply for home-state projects next year when Congress turns to the fiscal 2008 budget cycle.
We'll see if this is a change or just politicking, again.

The dem's are two for two, in my opinion. If they keep this up, then I think that I can live with the November election results... not just the message.
