Chocola: Salter attack on Club for Growth lacks facts

Sid Salter’s column attacking the Club for Growth for opposing Sen. Thad Cochran’s stance on the practice of pork barrel spending, otherwise known as “earmarking” deserves a response.

It’s entirely true that Cochran has brought a lot of money back to Mississippi, and that money has funded some valuable projects in the state. What Salter doesn’t mention is what Cochran spent our tax dollars on in exchange for those projects.
