- "I also worked...to take the pork barrel spending out of our Michigan budget. I offered a pork barrel list every year (so) that...my constituents could read about spending for sex change operations for prisoners and other programs like that and...they gave me a lot of support to say, "no," to spending. I'd like to do the same thing in Washington."
