I just read that S.C. Senator Jim DeMint's bill calling for a one year moratorium on earmarks failed by a vote of 29-71.
I was very disappointed to learn that one of my Senators, John Warner, voted against the bill. (I expected it from Jim Webb.) I just visited both Senators' web sites and registered my disappointment. I urge you to see how your Senators voted and do the same, if need be.
FYI, Senators Clinton, McCain and Obama all voted for the bill.
