It's Not New Money

Instersting to see the list of earmarks in today's USA Today article. The listing included at bottom of the article is most informative.

Regarding transportation funds: what most folks (and my guess is members of congress also) do not understand is that earmarks are NOT new money but only redirected funds from the state's normal allotment to the Member's favorite project.

Is this the way to do business???
