Help Decide the "2005 Porker of the Year"

Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) carries on the legacy of President Reaganís Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, also known as the Grace Commission. In 1982, President Reagan directed the Grace Commission to "work like tireless bloodhounds to root out government inefficiency and waste of tax dollars." For two years, 161 corporate executives and community leaders led an army of 2,000 volunteers on a waste hunt through the federal government. The search was funded entirely by voluntary contributions of $76 million from the private sector; it cost taxpayers nothing.

CAGW offers you a choice of eight members of Congress as nominees for 2005 Porker of the Year. Explanations are provided for each nominee. And, if you think one or more members of the Arlington County Board deserve special mention as local porkers, donít hesitate to send your nomination to ACTA!
