    Republicans is to attach earmarks to a bill and then vote against the bill. They then take credit in their state or district for bringing home the federal funding, project, etc. that they voted against. To complete the circle they then mercilessly attack the Democrats for voting for the pork-laden bill. Wash, rinse, and repeat. Why the Democrats don't require an aye vote in exchange for allowing a Republican earmark to remain in a bill is beyond my understanding.
