On the national side

Curious about how things work in Congress when it comes to budget time?  Check out this interview by Hugh Hewitt with Congressman John Campbell.  Mr. Campbell has been a congressman for 90 days and has had 63 requests for earmarks to be added to the budget. 

Put simply, a lot of people want to get their hands on “free” government money.

His solution?

We need a spending limit, and we need a line item veto. And I'm not sure that anything else is going to stop it, just because of the way that Congress works with individual...with so many members and so many interest groups.
