Despite more than $90 million in federal funds, the MTTC and the nonprofit that ran it officially went belly up last year.

But remember:  according to Mitch McConnell, the government should not be "picking winners and losers."

Politico seems to give credit for the earmark ban to the GOP, which I think is inaccurate. TFA says "following the GOP takeover of the House" when I believe that the ban started in the Senate, and "Republican Cornyn supported the ban".
I was lead to believe that Sen. Claire McCaskill was instrumental in the Senate's ban, and that the House followed suit because politics.

Y'know, while I don't like wasteful spending, I don't think 'pork' or earmarks are necessarily a bad thing. They seemed to be the grease in the wheels of politics that allowed compromise.

But hey, it's spending MY money on other people, and I don't like that! My money should be spent on ME AND ME ALONE!
