Drain the swap was a rallying cry of the Trump Campaign. The swamp is the fetid marsh of corruption known as Washington DC. The swamp dwellers are the establishment who enjoy the morass of back door deals in the swamp trading cash paybacks using your money to pay the politically connected through regulatory and legislative sleight of hand.
The silent majority once again woke up, heard the cry, and responded with an Earth shaking response by electing Donald Trump to be President.
Three of those Republican swamp dwellers have the audacity to propose bringing earmarks back into the swamp. And they want a secret vote to do it.
No, no, and Hell No!
House Republicans Should Reject Proposal to Bring Back Earmarks
From Freedom Works: By Jason Pye, November 15, 2016
Ahead of a vote in the House Republican Conference to lift the ban on earmarks, which has been in place since 2010, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
- “It’s incomprehensible that House Republicans, a week after voters sent a strong message to the Washington political establishment, would bring back earmarks – the currency of corruption. Earmarks became synonymous with cronyism and corruption in Congress, with Members handing out funding for the politically connected, and House Republicans were right to ban the practice in the first place. We hope that the House Republican Conference will reject this proposal to bring back earmarks and pursue a bold conservative agenda that reflects the will of conservative grassroots activists and voters.”
