Best option for senator is resignation

Freedom New Mexico It is ironic how often great malefactors get tripped up on matters that seem picayune by comparison. Alaska Republican Sen. Ted Stevens has for decades had a reputation as one of the most shameless, unapologetic and relentless pork barrelers in Congress. Sen. Stevens, the longest serving Republican in the Senate — since […]

Hillary takes pork barrel politics

By Freedom New Mexico It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton favors a Nanny State approach to what ails us. Indeed, she seems to prefer it even for what doesn’t ail us. Sen. Clinton has promised $5,000 handouts to all newborn babies so they one day can buy homes or attend college. She wants $1 billion […]

Congress licking chops over pork

By Freedom Newspapers Congressional Democrats did an admirable job of purging pork barrel projects — also called earmarks — from spending bills that were left unfinished when Republicans were ousted from power last fall. They had to do something, given all their campaign rhetoric about those fiscally feckless Republicans. But whether they can for long […]

Spending reform not likely during Pelosi’s term

By Freedom Newspapers Just as it took the anti-Communist Richard Nixon to go to China, because anyone else would have been accused of cuddling up with the Reds, perhaps it will take congressional Democrats — a party never associated with fiscal discipline — to help put a halt to the abuse of pork-barrel earmarks. Or […]

Book exposes federal spending on pork projects

Freedom Newspapers Get ready for some squealing. The “Congressional Pig Book,” an annual exposé of some of the worst pork barrel projects conceived by Congress, is due out this week. The report’s release is never a happy occasion inside the Beltway, but this year it’s even less so, given the spotlight that lobbying scandals have […]

4/5 Letters to the editor

Pork’s still pork, even if it’s for Cannon The duplicitous nature of our arguments never ceases to amaze. All of us, Republicans and Democrats alike, are upset at the astounding, “drunken sailor-ish” spending that’s currently going on in Washington. No offense to drunken sailors, but we demand answers! We demand accountability! We demand restraint! And […]

Small steps may help, but won’t put stop to pork

Freedom Newspapers There’s a serious flaw in the thinking of reformers who believe congressional pork-barrel spending can be curbed by forcing members to attach their names to the pet projects (or “earmarks”) they slip into appropriations bills, in circumvention of the normal budget procedures. They hope bringing more transparency and accountability to the process will […]

Congress’ finance reforms should start on inside

Freedom Newspapers The Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal has Congress scrambling to drum up reform ideas, as the profligates attempt to repackage themselves as neo-Puritans. Most of these efforts, no doubt, will involve tinkering with the minutiae of lobbying rules, as if sinning lobbyists, rather than saintly members of Congress, are the problem. An even bigger […]

Federal funding no longer needed for transportation

Freedom Newspapers Want a glimpse into the essence of pork-barrel funding and a clue to the source of chronic federal budget deficits? Exhibit No. 1: The $286 billion, six-year federal transportation bill Congress recently passed. Among legitimate projects, such as repairing interstate expressways, it also contains approximately 6,371 special projects earmarked for and by individual […]

Poor prioritizing exacerbates financial issues

Freedom Newspapers In yet another illustration of how pork, parochialism and congressional privilege routinely trump practicality, frugality and responsible priority-setting in Washington, the U.S. Senate voted recently to override a Pentagon plan to decommission an aircraft carrier and cancel a troubled cargo plane program. Both proposals were made in an effort to defray the mounting […]
