House Appropriations Chair on Stimulus Waste: "So What"

NPR: "We simply made a decision, which took about three seconds, not to have earmarks in the bill," House Appropriations Chairman David Obey says. "And with all due respect, that's the least important question facing us on putting together this package."

Leaving out the earmarks does mean Congress will have less control over how the money is spent. But, Obey says, "So what? This is an emergency. We've got to simply find a way to get this done as fast as possible and as well as possible, and that's what we're doing."
