Earmarks, Earmarks, Earmarks

Obama, Republicans agree: Reform culture of earmarks – CNN.com

I will believe it when I see it.  For years politicians have been passing laws with tons of baggage attached of which the people knew nothing about or were led astray.  Earmarks are ways to get things done without voter approval.  A law or some policy is written.  The people like it and vote for it.  Then our wonderful elected officials, whom we voted to represent us, turn on us and votes on a bill that has this baggage attached to appease special interest or some other whack-job.  Is this representing the people?  Remove earmarks, or whatever you call these things, and keep things simple and clear.

Thank you.

Of course, I’m stupid and do not understand this stuff, so maybe that is why I am so bitter.
