BREAKING NEWS: Watchdog Group Uncovers Billions in Earmarks in both the House and Senate Defense Appropriations Bills

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Today, the Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) uncovered hundreds of earmarks in both the House and Senate versions of the 2015 Defense Appropriations bill. In the House (click here), there were 137 earmarks worth $8,176,255,000. In the Senate (click here), there were 190 earmarks worth $11,718,149,000. All of the earmarks listed were spending items not requested by the Pentagon.  This is yet another disappointing example of Washington politicians spending taxpayer money in circumvention of established budgetary procedures. The waste could be seen in such familiar programs like $224,000,000 added by the House for the F-35; $120 million added by both the House and he Senate for the Abrams Tank; and $80 million for the Littoral Combat Ship. For a list of the earmarks that appeared in both chambers, click here!

TPA President David Williams issued the following statement:

“Congress continues their track record of running up the bill on the taxpayer dime with unrequested items. Appropriations bills from the House and Senate are yet another terrible example of Washington run amuck. These appropriations bills are just continuing the trend that we’ve seen since the caps on sequestration were broken last year with the passage of the Ryan-Murray budget.  House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has vowed that the ban on earmarks must continue, but it appears that there many politicians who have ignored this mandate…

“As millions of Americans continue to tighten their own belts and make sacrifices this summer due to their own financial struggles, their elected representatives in Washington continue what amounts to out of control spending…

“This is a bipartisan and bicameral problem and there must be real leadership to put an end to this outrageous and irresponsible behavior by Congress. The Pentagon made their budget requests to House and Senate appropriators and it is clear that politicians only care about doing what’s best for themselves, not the country. TPA will continue to shed light on a process that is still in desperate need of reform, and will urge members of Congress to stop the wasteful spending not just on Defense, but in all areas…

“Congress has a chance to kill this earmarks when the appropriations bill goes to conference.  TPA encourages members of Congress to do the right thing and make sure these earmarks are eliminated.”

Here is the full list of earmarks from both the House, and Senate Defense Appropriations Bills:
