Earmark my pork!

What are earmarks?  What is pork?

Earmarks, about 2% – that’s TWO percent – of the budget, are projects inserted into the budget by legislators to address needs back home, which is one reason why they were elected.

Pork is what conservatives label projects that spend  money to solve a social or community problem.

When I hear ‘pork’ , I think of the factually challenged fat boy!
