President Bush's Legacy Comes Down to Earmarks
Picking up on the theme laid out by Heritage’s Mike Franc last week in Human Events, today John Fund writes in the Wall Street Journal about President Bush’s legacy on fiscal responsibility:
This week President Bush will make one of the most important decisions of his remaining time in office. It won’t get headlines or lead the news, but it could play a major role in deciding whether this country ever gets any kind of grip on the constantly growing federal budget.
Fund’s column comes at a critical moment. The White House is expected to announce tomorrow if it will cancel lawmakers’ pork-barrel projects.
