I don't see the problem...

If your state or district puts in $1 and gets that $1 back through earmarks, what's the big deal? The real problem seems to be when you get more back than you put in. The three biggest welfare states are Alaska, New Mexico, and Mississippi. I forget where I saw that, but the site listed how much all the states paid in federal taxes vs how much they get back.
