71 Senators Kill McCaskill Earmark Moratorium

The Citizens Against Government Waste list them HERE.

The amendment would have put a one-year ban on all Congressional earmarks. The amendment was offered by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and had fourteen bipartisan co-sponsors including all three presidential candidates.

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill was a sponsor. Republican Sen. Kit Bond voted against it.

Claire continues to impress me with her independent stances on issues. Bond's explaination for his vote was weak and shows his hypocrisy.
