The Trough Shall Be Full!
The Pelosi lead House, and Harry Reid's Senate voted to keep their earmarks, and they'll probably "bundle" them again in the next budget, to make sure that their new, transparent process is anything but.
But hey, when you vote to raise taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars, why would you want to close the feeding trough? The folks in Congress see that huge increase in (Congress's) income as a way to make everyone happy, and keep themselves in power. Everyone will get a bridge to nowhere and two new parks! And they see you, typical voter, as too stupid to remember the promises that they made less than 2 years ago to fix this process.
