The 2010 earmark ban was a big win for taxpayers, and an opportunity for Congress to get back to the real work of legislating and oversight. Repealing the earmark ban would be a huge step backwards for a transparent, accountable government - taking power out of the hands of voters and putting it back in the hands of moneyed lobbyists. This would jumpstart even MORE wasteful spending that we simply can’t afford.
