Pork Votes Ranking: Cooper, Roe and Blackburn

Come out on top.

The Club for Growth has compiled a RePORK Card of all members' votes on all 68 anti-pork amendments (see below). "When given an opportunity to save taxpayer dollars and to limit spending to true national priorities, most members of Congress took a pass," said Club Executive Director David Keating. "The RePORK Card will help taxpayers measure the dedication of their representatives to changing the culture of corruption that surrounds pork-barrel spending."
