November’s Porkers of the Month

Posted by: Phineas on November 26, 2010 at 7:40 pm

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!
