Breaking: GOP Leadership Proposes Earmark Moratorium

Posted: Jan 25, 2008 7:51 PM
A House staffer attending the GOP retreat in West Virginia emails this to me:

House GOP Leadership announces an official policy for willingness for a one-year moratorium on earmarks; it will not be a unilateral disarmament, we are forcing the spotlight on the Democrats - we are ready and willing, so where do the Democrats really stand? 

The Democrats have until the end of their retreat next week to reply - or we will apply more pressure.

The pressure is on and it is only beginning.
