Open Letter to Congress: Keep the Economic Stimulus Bill Earmark Free

Re: Keep the Economic Stimulus Bill Earmark‑Free

Dear Representatives:

As a concerned constituent, I am writing to urge you to keep any economic stimulus bill earmark‑free.   With estimates of a possible stimulus bill running as high as $850 billion, it is essential that these spending decisions be made on need and merit, not political muscle.

That is why I request the following:

  1. That you pledge to keep any final stimulus bill earmark‑free.
  2. That you prominently publish on your website all project requests you receive.

Taxpayers are in the midst of an historic economic crisis.  Any further stimulus efforts must be undertaken in an open, transparent manner.

Thank you for considering my request.

Sincerely,

Rudy Sutherland | Small Business Owner & Evangelist

8-PAC
