Top 10 Highest Ranked Anti-Pork Senators

Last week, the Club for Growth released its 2007 Senate RePORK Card, compiling a scorecard of all senators’ votes on 15 anti-pork amendments throughout 2007. These amendments were offered by taxpayer heroes Senators Tom Coburn (R.-Okla.) and Jim DeMint (R.-S.C.).

“For all the talk about fiscal responsibility, it is clear that many senators are more interested in securing pet projects than living up to their campaign promises,” said Club for Growth President Pat Toomey. “Fortunately, taxpayers can look at the Club for Growth’s House and Senate RePORK Cards and hold their senators and representatives accountable for wasting taxpayer dollars on hippie museums and beaches.”

Below are the 10 highest scoring senators on the club’s RePORK Card. The full list is available at www.ClubForGrowth.org.
