2007, there were 50 suchamendments offered byRepresentatives John Campbell(R-CA), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), ScottGarrett(R-NJ) And JebHensarling (R-Texas). In theSenate, Senators tom Coburn(R-Ok) and Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) led the effort on earmark-related amendments.Most Members of Congress stilldon’t grasp the public’s strongdissenting opinion in regard tothe extent of congressionalspending and earmarking. A June2008 Survey conducted by theClub for Growth found that 54percent of likely voters wanttheir elected officials inWashington to cut overallspending. And that includescutting some money that wouldgo to their districts. Only 29-percent wanted their member of congress to increase the overallspending on federal programs.The Council for Citizens AgainstGovernment Waste (CCAGW)2007 ratings show some positivetrends. In the House 89-It has not been often for quitesome time that there wassomething positive to say aboutMembers of the House andSenate. That has beenparticularly true in regard totheir spending in ways to distressany self respecting drunkensailor.The remarkable happy news isthat in 2007 there was a largeincrease in the numbers of amendments offered in opposingpork barrel spending. It iscommon knowledge that thosewho have stepped up in the pastadvocating such a change havesometimes been penalized byfellow congressionalmembers. Among the penaltiesthey paid were losing spots oncoveted committees assortedthreats, and a lack of support fortheir legislation.In 2006 Congressional Ratings,19 amendments were offered inthe House and five were offeredin the Senate in relation to pork barrel spending (often referredto as earmarks).

members voted for earmarkrelated amendments, In fact oneamendment passed that removed$129,000 for the “Homeof the Perfect Christmas Tree”project in Mitchell County,N.C., from the House FinancialService Appropriations Act. In2005 congressional membersoffered an average of 68amendments, none of whichpassed.Way too often citizens hear theirofficials say “the federalgovernment can pay forthis program. “It’s only two-million,” is a common rationale.This of course makes norecognition that it is all taxpayermoney.CCAGW is an excellentorganization that publishes anannual

that giveslistings of earmarks and does afine job of nailing offendingcongressional members’ shoes tothe floors of their respectiveoffices. And that seems to be avery good thing.prayed the prayer of the afflictedwho has nowhere else togo. After laying his troubles before the God he served, hesuddenly remembered God’simmutable nature. Hisrelief came...not from a changein his situation...but from therealization that God cannotchange and that His compassionwill provide a refuge even inlife’s most grievous trials.As Republicans, this monthWhen I think of the many strongleaders we have all read about inthe bible, there is a familiarthread that seems to be woventhrough most of their lives. It atime of discouragement. Mostseemed to have experienceddeep depression andoverwhelming disappointment atone time or the other.Though the author of Psalm102 is anonymous we see that heturned to God in his distress andhas been a very discouragingtime. We look at challengesahead politically in our effort tokeep a strong America, a God-fearing America. This may bethe time we realize howimportant prayer for our nationreally is. Join me in praying for ournation daily.
