"Everyone Loses"

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) on the failure of Congress to rein in earmarks:

I believe the public discontent can be accurately sourced, and Congressional earmarking process has become a symbol for wasteful and undisciplined federal spending....Even a one-year moratorium on earmarking was too great a sacrifice for the political class in Washington this month. We could have used that time to regroup and put in place a process for local expenditures that is fair, transparent, and defensible to the public. We missed that opportunity, and it will not be surprising if the public continues to object to our inaction.
