Obama in fiscal year 2008 secured $98 million in funding for Illinois projects, according to Taxpayers for Common Sense. Information released Thursday by the Obama campaign indicates he requested $311 million in earmarks for the same year Clinton grabbed $342 million worth of earmarks last year, ranking her 10th highest on the list of senators, according to the budget watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense. But as of Thursday, the Clinton campaign still had not released details on how much she requested for 2007 and what it was for. McCain, who has refused to request spending for projects in his home state of Arizona, has long been a vocal critic of earmarks. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/03/13/earmark.vote/ Just who has the record of fiscal responsibility?
