Earmarks are only a small part of the problem

Tucson, AZ. The call for “no earmarks” is little more than a shallow campaign season stunt. The real issue is out-of-control government spending. A deficit is still a deficit, if it comes from earmarks or general appropriations.

The voters are tired of government overspending, whether it is the Arizona Legislature voting for Napolitano’s reckless ’08 budget, or a Congresswoman voting in favor of the pork-filled TARP program. To reduce deficit spending, you need to reduce the size and scope of government.

Jesse Kelly has a consistent record of supporting across the board spending reductions as well as a Constitutionality test for federal spending. The two career politicians in the CD8 race both have records of voting for excessive spending. The voters should not be fooled by talk of ending earmarks or mention of PAYGO. These terms are both the same, election year rhetoric from career politicians.

Jesse Kelly is a Republican candidate for Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District in the southeastern region of the state. For more information on the Kelly campaign please visit VoteJesseKelly.com or send an e-mail to media@jessekellyforcongress.

  1. “Jesse Kelly has a consistent record of supporting across the board spending reductions as well as a Constitutionality test for federal spending.”

    He does? Where? In his press releases?

  2. Did Gabby Giffords write this?

  3. This is correct. Earmarks are such a small part of the budget problem, not that any earmarks are good, we do have bigger fish to fry. Why keep getting bogged down in the minutia. Just another way to take our eye off the ball, we need to take back our Government first.
