Multi-culturalism arrives in the Congress.

U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, D-VA, says he will reward voters in his district if the Democrats win back control of the House next November. How will he reward them? Just like the politicians do it here in Mexico. Promise them money.
If Democrats win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November, U.S. Rep. Jim Moran said he would use his position in the majority to help funnel more funds to his Northern Virginia district.

Moran, D-8th, told those attending the Arlington County Democratic Committee's annual Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner on June 9 that while he in theory might oppose the fiscal irresponsibility of "earmarks" - funneling money to projects in a member of Congress's district - he understands the value they have to constituents.
He opposes "earmarks", more commonly known as pork, "in theory". In practice, however; Rave on, Jimbo.
"When I become chairman (of a House appropriations subcommittee), I'm going to earmark the shit out of it," Moran buoyantly told a crowd of 450 attending the event.
