Senate Suspends Earmark Spending for Two Years Dang, I wonder what they will do for two years, without it. Not that it will make a dent in what they have done already.

    So they aren't going to have earmarks for two years; what are they going to call them now?

    It won't make any dents, but it will help to gain Obama approval.
    It is a ploy to help get him re-elected, nothing more.

    The debt isn't going to be reduced until Washington gets serious, and in the meantime the country is getting dangerously close to default. Obama and his buddies in the Senate are really getting bold cutting earmarks when the GOP gets control of the House, although this action was actually needed a couple of years ago, but Obama didn't want to cut off perks to his friends.
    This is really about as ridiculous as Obama ordering operating budgets reduced, and the actual impact on the debt is well illustrated in the following: http://wimp.com/budgetcuts/
