From “riders” to “earmarks”, when they change the name of the loophole, it will remain a loophole- and special interests, like corporations and the wealthy, and yes, the few remaining unions (with the cumulative remaining power of a dry cleaner in Salt Lake City), will be there to write them.

That was one thing a lot of voters (myself included) have wanted for a long time. If we see people saying no to banning earmarks, it keeps those congressional leaders in our crosshairs until the next election cycle.
