Maryland Congressional Delegation MIA on Earmarks

If you follow anything over at the Club for Growth, you should follow their list of Representatives and Senators who have pledged to swear off earmarks for the remainder of the 109th Congress. Conspicuously absent from the list: anyone in the Maryland Congressional Delegation.

That’s right. The entire delegation — even the two Republicans (Roscoe Bartlett and Wayne Gilchrest) are MIA on the issue. Apparently, the Maryland Congressional Delegation has determined that it is not in the best interests of their constituents to fight to restrain this whorish spending practice.

Contact the members of our delegation now, and encourage them to forswear the use of earmarks in the Federal budgeting process:
