McCain decries earmarks Palin uses

Republican John McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, equated lawmakers’ requests for funding for special projects with corruption on Wednesday, even though Palin has requested nearly $200 million in so-called earmarks this year.

McCain blamed earmarks for high food and gasoline prices and the trouble many homeowners face in making mortgage payments. He pledged again to veto any bill that contains such funding.

“I got an old ink pen, my friends, and the first pork barrel-laden earmark, big-spending bill that comes across my desk, I will veto it. You will know their names. I will make them famous, and we’ll stop this corruption,” McCain said during a rally at a park in suburban Washington, D.C. Source Article
