McCaskill: Congress "Loves These Earmarks"

Sen. Claire McCaskill explains why she is in favor of an earmark-laden bill, despite being an outspoken critic of earmarks. She calls other Senators and other people in Congress choosing earmarks "a habit that is deeply engrained."

She added that the fact that Republicans are back for more earmarks is "an equal opportunity sin."

Sen. Richard Shelby also comments.
