Which one is the lie - Part 2
I may need more room for all of these.....
"Done right earmarks give legislators the opportunity to direct federal money to worthy projects that benefit people in their district, and that's why I have opposed their outright elimination." - Pres. Obama, March 11, 2009 (discussing why it was okay to sign the 2009 Omnibus budget)
"And because the American people deserve to know that special interests aren't larding up legislation with pet projects, both parties in Congress should know this: If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it. I will veto it." - Pres. Obama, January 25, 2011 (during the State of the Union address)
