Issue Position: Abolishing Earmarks

I oppose earmarks not just because of all the wasteful spending; I oppose them because they represent a corruption of the political process. In my business, we only spend money on ideas that make sense and make dollars for our company. The same should be true for government. If an idea is worth funding, then it should be funded through the normal appropriations process. We should never allow votes to be traded for money. That is why I will support doing away with the earmark process.
