Former Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) calls into The Glenn Beck Radio Program to explain why earmarks are unconstitutional and call for an immediate end to earmarks and pork-barrel spending. Tom has harsh words for current members of Congress who maintain the status quo to secure their own reelection at the expense of responsible governance.
"If you eliminated all earmarks, actually Congress could start doing their job," Tom claims. "It's careerism, it's elitism and it's contemptuous."
Tom continues: "What the earmarks vote is, is cowardice. It's about me, and not about our country. And to me, it is so disappointing."
