A thank you to Congressman Ryan and all those in Congress who voted to give the President the power remove a pork-barrel spending project from a bill and return it to Congress for a special vote.
The bill passed the House 247-172.
The bill is waiting for approval from the Senate.
This bill will succeed in exposing wasteful government spending. Hopefully Congress will think twice before adding these pork-barrel projects to certain bills, for fear that this spending will be exposed to the American people. Perhaps the fear of embarrassment may be enough to get Congress to control spending.
Now- let's get it passed thru the Senate!
