This week, President Obama signed what he called an “imperfect” bill that spends $410 billion, including millions in earmarks.
You remember earmaks? In the campaign last year when he talked about change, change you can trust and all that, he promised to curb earmarks.
But now he says earmarks are good when they are “done right.”
The massive measure supporting federal agencies through the fall contains nearly 8,000 pet projects, earmarked by sponsors though denounced by critics. And the president at one time.
