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 [1], today John Fund writes in the Wall Street Journal [2] 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.
