You know you want to. With a single signature, you could end the era of earmarks. You could ruin Christmas for Pelosi, Murtha, Stevens, Obey, Lott, and all those other hogs at the trough who think the federal treasury is their personal piggy bank. With one simple act, you could restore integrity to the federal budgeting process by requiring these pork kings and queens to vote in public and on the record for each and every dollar they force us to spend to buy their way to reelection. And, in the process, you’d restore your own reputation and that of the Republican party for fiscal responsibility .
Do it, Mr. President. Take out the pen. Sign the order.
