Just in time for Thanksgiving, The Fifth Annual California Piglet Book is out, brought to you by Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA) and Tom Schatz, the President of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW). The city of Los Angeles will now be able to cross off the six $300,000 toilets that don’t work from their list of things they are thankful for. You can read a column detailing this and other highlights by the presidents of the two groups at the Flashreport:
Cumulatively, we estimate that the examples of abuse in the 2007 Piglet Book total at least $3 billion dollars. Considering that the Legislative Analystâ€™s Office released a report last week detailing a $10 billion budget revenue shortfall, this profound waste of taxpayer dollars is very disturbing.
