Default Obama promised no earmarks, mad props to him

Yet the new budget package that Congress is voting on has over 8,700 of them.
After a month in office, Obama holds the title of man to spend the most money in all history.






With the Democrats and Republicans exposed as the hypocrites they are, and choice being no choice at all, maybe people can finally start paying attention and stop feeding the corporate government complex before this nation collapses for good.

It's simple. It's up to us to make changes in Washington. We have the power of the vote. It comes down to that in the end. No one can be trusted any longer and I wouldn't be surprised if government spread beyond the electoral process somewhere down the line. A vote for "Change" is a no vote.

The Republicans lied about their promises to keep spending under control when they controlled the government. The Democrats have broken promise after promise since they have controlled Congress in 06. Part of the reason that this Congress had the lowest approval ratings in US history, much lower than even Bush's approval rating if that's believable. I see Obama is at least attempting to becoming centrist. Hopefully he will keep most of his promises to mainstream America and look out for all of us, not just his special interest groups. Republicans, Independents and Democrats of America need him to be an impartial, honest president right now, not just another politician. I am not holding my breath though.

I'm really not sure what that means at all. 100 days for "um" to do what?! And who is this "jsut" you are demanding give "um" 100 days?
