Ron Paul's BACKDOOR EARMARK

Remember a few weeks ago , we talked about the congresspeople who have disclosed their earmark spending? Thanks for this non PDF list. Rather interesting! Don't miss #20!*

BACKDOOR EARMARKS. These are pork spending that Paul preaches against, but attaches them to bills he knows will pass while , at the same time, claiming to vote against (albeit we've seen he doesn't always vote against).
