We have all spoken about holding our elected officials responsible for their votes. Here is our chance. We understand that earmarks as a % of total spending is microscopic, however, earmarks are used, in many instances, to buy votes: See "the Cornhusker Kickback", "the Louisiana Purchase", etc. Just as John Boehner decided to fly commercial, the Senate should move to end the earmark practice. Do you agree?
