Tenn. Dems ♥ earmarks

Republicans in the U.S. House forced a vote yesterday to consider an immediate earmark moratorium. (For those who are unfamiliar with the word "earmark," it means pork barrel spending.) The final tally was 204-196.

A "yes" vote was a vote to not consider the moratorium. All those voting "yes" were Democrats, including Rep. Lincoln "I'm A Conservative" Davis, Rep. Jim "Deficit Hawk" Cooper, and Rep. John "Debt Will Be The Death Of The U.S.A" Tanner.

Way to sniff Nancy Pelosi's throne, guys!
