November’s Porkers of the Month

November 26, 2010

We have joint winners for this month’s Porker Award from Citizens Against Government Waste and Reason.TV: Senators Tom Carper (D) of Delaware and George Voinovich (R) of Ohio, who want to raise the federal gasoline tax 135% so they and their buddies can use even more of the Highway Trust Fund for purposes for which it was never intended, such as hovercrafts.

No, really:

Congratulations, gentlemen. Well done!

Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Porker of the Month!

July 24, 2010

And she’s a worthy winner, too:

Ms. Kaptur “represents” Ohio’s 9th district. Maybe it’s time the voters there looked for someone who won’t treat the public treasury as her personal piggy bank.
