JUST RELEASED: the U.S. taxpayer’s “little pink book” (2012 edition)

The little  pink book that makes politicians squirm is back!

Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) will release the 2012 Congressional Pig Book at a news conference tomorrow, April 17, at 10:00 a.m. EDT alongside Senators:

and Representatives:

The Congressional Pig Book is CAGW’s annual exposé of the pork-barrel earmarks in the federal budget. The 2012 Pig Book features a complete database of pork projects and profiles the most egregious examples from the fiscal year 2012 appropriations bills. Speakers at the news conference will discuss the current state of earmark reform, the increasingly tenuous earmark moratorium, and what needs to be done to stop Congress from continuing its swinish ways…permanently.

Citizens Against Government Waste is the nation’s largest taxpayer watchdog group with more than one million members and supporters nationwide.  It is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.  Contributions to CAGW are tax-deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law.
