Republican 'Shameful Display of Swamp Politics'

"With Republicans officially in control of the House for the 118th Congress, there's been a hope for change, including the calls to ban earmarks. Yet on Wednesday, House Republicans voted on many changes to the party's rules, which included banning earmarks, something they failed to do.

The vote to do so, in fact, which came via a motion by Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA), failed "resoundingly," as Thursday's Punchbowl News newsletter put it. The vote, the only recorded one, came down to 158-58-1. 

In a strongly worded statement for Townhall, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) called it "a shameful display of swamp politics" to describe how "an embarrassingly large majority of the House Republican Conference voted against my friend Rep. Tom McClintock’s amendment to ban earmarks next Congress." 

As Roy described earmarks, they "are the currency of corruption in Washington, D.C. They lead to backroom deals that incentivize Members to vote for massive spending blowouts, fund woke and wasteful projects like LGBT Centers and Diversity and Inclusion programs, and allow Members to steer taxpayer dollars to pet projects for their own personal gain."

The fact of the matter is that too many Republicans are no different from Democrats - Uniparty Swamp Creatures!

============================
When the Democrat-Marxist Congress were in control for many years, they all abused earmarks. Fact of the matter was CA, and NYC, had been paid by Biden hundreds of billions of dollars in payment for their State's highest Budget Deficits due to the corruptions of the LIBTARDS elected officials who managed their cities and states.

The Federal money is not supposed to pay off the State's or Cities' National Debts. Bankruptcies of CA and NY id due to corruptions of their democrat elected leaders.

AP 45:

This kind of non-action is why voters feel both Democrats & Republicans are doing NOTHING to help the everyday American & care ONLY for their on welfare! A job where a guaranteed GREAT pension, healthcare. Unfortunately politicians are the people that fall into the category of being MORE equal than every day Americans!

We need to compile a list of who voted this way and REMIND voters of it, come the primaries. Got to start somewhere, and torching swamp creatures, regardless of their party, is a start.

Right. Both parties are fund raising operations most concerned with maintaining their own positions of power and influence. The individual voter is given lip service because what are they really going to do about it?

There is a giant alligator roaming the Miami golf courses that gobbles up golf balls for its superior gizzard and digestion. Rumor has it that the gator is moving to the Potomoc to drain the swamp.

It is clear that the majority of both parties are completely corrupt
