The Battle to Control Earmarks and Restore Limited Government

Recorded on May 11, 2006

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

When it comes to exercising its fiduciary responsibilities, our national government seems paralyzed - unable to set clear priorities, identify and eliminate wasteful spending, or say "no" to a multitude of pet projects hidden in budgetary earmarks. Failure to put our federal finances in order is a fundamental threat to our economy, and a growing and intrusive government endangers our personal freedoms. Join us as Senator Tom Coburn outlines the transformative steps necessary for putting our fiscal house in order.
