Democrats squeaked into the majority in 2006 based -- in great part -- upon a vow to clean up Congress. Their winning sound-bites included promises to "drain the swamp" and eradicate "the culture of corruption."
Instead, the 2007 Water Projects Bill demonstrates just how thoroughly corrupt the Democratic-led Congress has become.
When the next bridge collapse or levy failure occurs, voters would do well to recall that Democrats lied... and earmark reform died. One hopes that innocent lives aren't also lost, precipitated by the greed of Boxer, Reid, and the rest of the real culture of corruption.
This simply reinforces the fact that we do need a fairness doctrine... for the American taxpayer.
