Reason.tv Replay: Porker of The Month (July 2010): Rep. Marcy Kaptur!

|


Reason.tv presents Citizens Against Government Waste's Porker of the Month for July 2010: Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH)!

Back in March, the House Appropriations Committee banned members of Congress from awarding earmarks to for-profit companies.

Kaptur publicly praised the new ban, but privately she taught corporations (including one of her biggest campaign contributors) how to get around it, thus ensuring that their steady diet of taxpayer-supplied pork would continue.

Way to go, Rep. Kaptur!

"Porker of the Month" is written and produced by Austin Bragg.  Approximately 1.2 minutes.
