John Linder & Pork-Barrel Spending

Warning: Local politics for North Georgia. 

John Linder (My congressman) is co-author with Neal Boortz of the Fair Tax book and initiative, a desire to see the complicated IRS forms and schedules replaced with a much simpler form, while still retaining a significant progressitivity.  Reasonable people can disagree about the Fair Tax, but that’s not the purpose of this post.

On the Club for Growth blog, all of our Congresspeople are ranked based on their votes on Jeff Flake’s 19 anti-pork spending amendments.  John Linder scored a decent, but disappointing 74%

So I call on  you, Representative Linder, to do better – if you’re committed to making government better, more efficient and less of an intrusion in our everyday lives, I want to see you support more of these anti-pork initiatives!
