    Interesting read and data on earmarks:
     
    [link=http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/hjackson/Earmarks_16.pdf]http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/hjackson/Earmarks_16.pdf[/link]
     
    Although total number of earmarks is increasing, the percentage of federal spending due to earmarks remains about 2%
     
    This chart extends the data out 3 more years…
