If the proposed spending/tax spree (I mean the Democrat’s budget) and the pork filled war supplemental were not enough to drive you crazy, the Democrats have now announced that they are extending the deadline for members to submit earmark's by two weeks. I guess they just can't get their fix and need more time to figure out how they can spend your money on frivolous pet projects.

What's more, they have also removed the "limitations on the number of requests allowed to be made per Member." This is mind-boggling to me. They have now flung the door wide open for members to cram as many pork projects into spending bills as they can. Despite the clear need for reform and calls for accountability in this process, the Democrats have reneged and the favor factory is once again open for business.
