As Chairman of the full Appropriations Committee, Hal Rogers is the pope of the big-spending cardinals. The “Prince of Pork” has been in the House for 30 years and is the bulwark against any effort to reduce the size of government. Rogers is part of the TARP-Bailouts-Debt Ceiling-Omnibus club of GOP leaders that are bankrupting our republic. However, it is his committee work that is even more pernicious than his floor votes. Let’s be clear; we will never balance the budget as long as Rogers is chairman of the Appropriations Committee.
