John McCain – Porkbuster

John McCain is using his reform credentials to get out in front on the earmark issue in Congress.  According to the AP, via ABC News

WASHINGTON Feb 9, 2006 (AP)— Ten senators led by Sen. John McCain took on the Senate’s much maligned practice of inserting individual members’ special projects, often without the knowledge of their colleagues, into larger spending bills.

The “Pork-Barrel Reduction Act,” introduced Thursday by eight Republicans and two Democrats, is the latest in a rash of proposals promoting ways to restore integrity to the political process in the wake of lobbying and ethics scandals.

It’s been a while since there’s been a John McCain proposal I’ve been for.  It’s about time.

  1. I think ethics reform in the Congress is important, but I would argue that the 17th amendment has increased the likelihood of such lapses. If you are interested in this, pls see http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/10/27/the-u-s-senate-what-is-it-really/
