Republicans in Need of an Intervention

Congressman Jeff Flake spotlights a weekly Egregious Earmark on his Web site. For the week of January 26, 2005 he has this entry:
Washington, D.C. – Arizona Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents the state’s Sixth District, today highlighted another pork project contained in the massive omnibus spending bill that Congress recently passed.

This week’s egregious earmark: $150,000 for the Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program at the Lady B Ranch in California.

I hate to beat a dead horse, but if Republicans continue to fund earmarks like this, we may find ourselves riding back into the minority,” said Flake.
I'm adding Congressman Flake's list of Egregious Earmarks to my recommended site list.
