Roskam the Pork-Reformer?
If Peter Roskam is going to be serious about his stated pledge to do what he can to clean up Washington and pork spending, rather than continually attacking the Democrats on this issue, he should spend this week going after fellow Republican Lewis, and doing all he can to get Republican colleague Rep. Flake from Arizona on the Appropriations Committee. (See Robert Novak's column at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/01/23/AR2008012303286.html). Anything less than this, then Roskam's words are hollow and he should be even further exposed as nothing more than a Republican political hack.
