9,000 earmarks!

During the presidential debate in Oxford, Mississippi, Barack Obama said, "We need earmark reform." He went on to add, "And when I am president, I will go line by line to make sure we are not spending money unwisely."

According to NewsMax, Congress is working on a "$410 billion omnibus spending bill" that will contain 9,000 earmarks!

Any bets on whether President Obama will keep his campaign pledge and get tough on earmarks?
