Last week, Billy signed the Citizens Against Government Waste No Pork Pledge. The pledge is sponsored by Citizens Against Government Waste, the publishers of the yearly “Pig Book” that outlines all pork projects included in the federal budget.

If I am elected, I will not engage in the kind of irresponsible, corrupt spending that has become so commonplace in our nation’s capitol.”
