Reid Fights Obama: Earmarks Are ‘What We’re Supposed to Do’

Thanks to the scummy SEIU, voter fraud and the many dumb people in Nevada who voted for Harry 'dirtbag' Reid in November, we're now stuck with this corrupt JACKASS for six more years.

Despite public support for a ban on unquestioned earmarks, the politicians in Washington aren‘t ready to give up their grasp on the nation’s purse strings:

Preparing for a final showdown on the massive $1.1 trillion spending bill, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid defended the thousands of earmarks in the measure as the basic function of Congress.

“That’s our job. That‘s what we’re supposed to do,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, said as he chastised fellow senators who, while having requested pork-barrel spending earlier this year, are now decrying their inclusion in the spending bill.

Mr. Reid challenged those senators to voluntarily agree to strip their own earmarks out of the bill, and said so far, nobody has taken him up on that.
