The non-partisan National Taxpayers Union (NTU) has posted a listing on their website listing the members of Congress who have supported every 2007 Flake (R-AZ) amendment to strike wasteful earmarks from appropriations bills. There are 42 members of Congress listed, including myself, as well as 1 Democrat, Jim Cooper of Tennessee. Perhaps Rep. Cooper can persuade some of his other "fiscally responsible" Blue Dog Democrats to join him in opposing the wasting of taxpayer funds.

The link to the NTU posting showing all 42 members is:
