Want to know about earmarks? Earmarks are what your senators get for voting the way party leaders want them to vote. Thats right, this is how just a few people at the top of each party, such as Pelosi and Reid, is controling the votes on health care. The party leaders control who gets earmarks and who doesn't get any. In other words they control how the Senators look back home. If they don't "play ball", they will most likely lose the next election. Most people don't realize it but the president and a few party leaders control everything that happens in Washington. It could almost be called a dictatorship instead of a Democracy. They have a lot of nerve to bad mouth the Afganistan government about corruption when they are up to their ears in it. Pelosi and Reid gave the Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) 100 million for the yes vote on the current Healthcare bill. Billions of dollars are being spent this way every year. This is the worst kind of corrruption. Our government leaders are using your money to bribe our members of Congress to vote the way they want them to vote. This is the main reason we are up to our ears in debt. Please do what you can to remove these people from office.
