Nelson says he will continue to fight for money to come to Nebraska

As Republicans in Washington line up to ban earmark spending, Nebraska Democratic U.S. Senator Ben Nelson says he will continue to fight for the money to come to Nebraska.
“Those who are opposed to earmarks seem to be saying it’s wasteful spending, yeat getting rid of the earmarks won’t change one dimes worth of spending.”
Nelson says eliminating earmarks would simply shift the decision making from elected officials to Washington.
