And so we see another demonstration of the entrenched perversity of Washington, DC.
Dismissing President Barack Obama’s opposition to earmarks as “an applause line,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told NBC News on Wednesday that the president should “back off” and let lawmakers continue to direct spending to their home districts. Asked during a one-on-one interview with NBC whether Obama was wrong to promise a veto on any bill that contains earmarks, Reid quickly replied, “of course.”
Politicians and their dirtbaggery- and you and I get to pay for it so they can be re-elected because their unthinking constituents are glad they got a new bridge thanks to people who don’t even live where they do.
Corruption rules Washington. No wonder DC likes Karzai so much- he’s their mirror image.
