Some Republicans are licking their lips, salivating over the opportunity to loot the public coffers.
They want to reintroduce earmarking, an unpopular practice that everyone agrees is greedy and wasteful. It was one of the practices that gave rise to the Tea Party which, contrary to popular caricatures, was all about giving the shiv to Republican incumbents.
The greedy assholes in question are John Culberson of Texas, Mike Rogers of Alabama, and Tom Rooney of Florida. Now that the Tea Party is dead, killed off by the media and IRS, they must feel safe from retribution. You can, at minimum, let them know that even if you don’t live in their district you can still donate money to whomever runs against them in 2018!
If you have a Republican congressman, let him know how you feel about wasteful spending.
