Americans for a Great America
I’m really sick of these deceptively named front groups that try to pretend to be the opposite of what they are. In this case, we have a bunch of lobbyists who are employed in obtaining earmarks for clients banding together to create some kind of earmark transparency group. They want to extoll the benefits of earmarks and support transparency for earmarks. Or something.
Here’s a very quick idea. If you are a lobbyist and you support more transparency for earmarks then endorse and lobby for these earmark transparency bills. That’s it. Okay.
Save the money that you’re going to spend to create some campaign about earmark idolatry. Just help pass the two bills titled “Earmark Transparency Act.”
Unless, that isn’t what you really want.
