Libertarians urge Obama to veto pork-ridden spending bill

Sub-Title: 

Libertarians stand with taxpayers against earmark abuse

WASHINGTON – America’s third largest party urged President Barack Obama Tuesday to live up to his promise to “end politics as usual in Washington” and veto a  $410 billion spending bill.  The legislation includes 8,570 earmarks totaling $7.7 billion, a practice Obama pledged to end as part of his pitch to voters during the 2008 election.
