Reid Opposes Earmark Ban

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) “on Tuesday brushed back a proposal to ban earmarks President Obama is expected to include in his State of the Union address,” The Hill reports.

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Reid said that the plan is "a lot of pretty talk" and would cede too much power to the executive branch.

It would give "the president more power and he’s got enough power already," he said.
