Entered on:
Earmarks are just the specifications on how a lump of money that has already been approved will eventually get split up. Someone HAS to make these decisions. Either the legislators, the committees or the executive bureaucrats. The legislators represent the constituents and ask for local distribution. That is part of their job to alert the Federal branches what in their local area needs federal help. The money is already spent either way.
