According to Obama, Mccain's idea of cutting out pork barrel spending will only be a tiny fraction of the money that we could save under a Democratic administration.

Right, didn't he say that this earmark/porkbarrel thing only accounted for something like one tenth of 1%?

That's simply not true. Pork barreling is a HUGE burden on the national budget...always has been. It is a big part of what keeps the military industrial complex (if you choose to call it such a conspiratorial name) afloat...that, and the fact that we go to war every year or two!

Where the Republicans no longer have a leg to stand on is that they have lost any semblance of fiscal conservatism. Now it seems only the Libertarians actually preach small government!
