No surprise there–the Senate is still controlled by Democrats pretending that recent election didn’t happen. Eight Republicans voted against the ban as well, which also isn’t surprising, considering the Republican Party is still populated with many Big Government believers who have no qualms about purchasing votes at taxpayer expense. Fortunately, the Republicans in the House DID vote to ban earmarks. This will be critical moving forward as a check on the Senate as it continues to load bills with special favors funded by you and me.
