AFP - Choose the Champion of Pork

email header 550

It's that time of year again: 

With Tax Day just around the corner, now is the ideal time to review all the wasteful spending programs that the federal government has paid for with your hard-earned tax dollars. 

And since March Madness is in full swing, what better way to do it than with a good, old-fashioned tournament bracket? 


Your votes over the next two weeks will decide which of 16 budget-busting federal spending programs will be crowned Americans for Prosperity's Champion of Pork! 

Here are just a few of the pork-barrel spending projects that the federal government is paying for with YOUR tax dollars: 

- $14 million on catfish inspections

- $92 million in bonuses for IRS employees

- $682,570 to study shrimp on a treadmill

Which wasteful spending program is most worthy of being crowned the Champion of Pork?


(If your March Madness bracket isn't doing so well, this is a great opportunity to redeem yourself.) 

We'll be in touch soon to let you know which ridiculous government spending programs are advancing to the next round of voting: the Extravagant 8.

Thank you for voting, and for being a part of our efforts to cut wasteful spending!
