    I wouldn’t mind as much if each politician clearly had a certain amount of money allocated to them so they could earmark.  But what happens is the most entrenched (and often most corrupt) politicians have a disproportionate influence on spending.  This is true of both Dems and Repubs.  Mitch Mcconnell, I believe, had $75 million in earmarks, so he has no right complain.
