Donate to help fund this important project! "There she is..."

MARCH PORKER OF THE MONTH: Rep. Rosa DeLauro and Sen. Patrick Leahy

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) named House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) our March 2021 Porkers of the Month for bringing back corrupt, costly, and inequitable earmarks. Rep. DeLauro and Sen. Leahy are trying to disguise the revival of pork-barrel earmarks by renaming them “Community Project Funding” and claiming that earmarks will be more transparent and limited. Earmarking — by design — will never be transparent and will always be a form of legalized bribery. CAGW’s earmark database contains 111,114 earmarks that have cost taxpayers $375.7 billion since the first Congressional Pig Book was released in 1991. Earmarks are a lazy, unfair, and corrupt way to circumvent the authorization and appropriations process.... Read more →
