U.S. Mayors Ready Pork For Stimulus

Press Release

Location: Mesa, AZ

Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona's Sixth District, today urged Congress not to include pork projects when it considers an economic stimulus bill early next year.

"If pork-barrel spending stimulated the economy, we wouldn't be in a recession right now," said Flake. "Pro-growth tax cuts would be a more effective economic stimulus than pork projects."

The U.S. Conference of Mayors has released a list of pork projects that are "ready to go" if funding is included in the stimulus.
