"In 2010 there were 11,320 total earmarks worth $32 billion. That's the equivalent of mugging my family for $300! Is using earmarks for personal financial gain corrupt? Of course. Is using earmarks to 'bring jobs to the District' and buy votes corrupt? Definitely. But these outcomes are to be expected, because the REAL corruption is your refusal to follow the Constitution."
