McCaskill takes GOP to task on earmarks


McCaskill, poking a pencil at the podium as she spoke, said she couldn't understand Republicans who criticized the stimulus package for being weighed down with earmarks then sponsor earmarks themselves on the giant omnibus spending bill under consideration.

"Every single member of Republican leadership has earmarks in this bill," McCaskill said. "Every single one of these people rejected the stimulus … because supposedly they were so upset about wasteful spending."
