Congress was right to get rid of earmarks as they encouraged the wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars and bred corruption. They should be banned, and agencies should block and report on any attempted backdoor earmarks.
It would be easier for Congress to pass legislation that significantly impacts the American people if they were able to cut deals involving earmarks that benefit reluctant members’ home districts.
